Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6

Living Legacy

If you wait until you get there to find what you’ve got there you might not like what you’ve got there when you get there!
A pig and a cow met in the barnyard. The pig lamented his lack of popularity. He complained that people always talked about the cow’s gentleness and kind eyes while always using the pig’s name as an insult. “I do not understand why cows are esteemed so much higher than pigs”, the pig complained. “After all, pigs give bacon and ham and people even pickle our feet.”
The Cow thought for a minute and then said, “Maybe the difference is that cows give what we can while we are still living!”
What are you giving “while you are still living?” I am thinking of a man who decided to designate to mission work in India in his will so he could help build churches when he died. As he thought about the needs, however, he decided not to wait until he died in order to do what needed to be done. His sacrificial giving has already built several churches in India where hundreds of people worship in block buildings instead of searing sun or pouring rain. And He did it while he was still living.
Jesus told us to “lay up treasures in Heaven”. Our goal should not simply be to “get to Heaven”. Our goal is to “get heaven” to as many people as possible before we get there.
