Your Forgiveness Legacy

Forgiveness is not finished with you yet. How will you lead your life from this point forward? It is your choice. When that story is finally written, what will the final chapters say about you? The beauty of this story is that you are one of the contributing authors. You do not write it alone, of course, but with the help of those who encourage you, instruct and guide you, and even hurt you. You are never alone when it comes to your love story. It does not matter one little bit where the story was going before you embraced the virtue of forgiveness. What matters now is how you finish that story, how you start to live your life from this point forward.

What do you think? Do you think that most people are deliberately and consciously writing their own love stories, in part on the basis of leading The Forgiving Lifelong JourneyLife? Or, are most people rushing by, not giving much thought to forgiveness or love?

What do you think? Do you think that most people are aware of their legacy, what they will leave behind from this precise moment on, or are they rushing about, not giving a moment’s notice to that legacy?

What do you think? Do you think that you can make a difference in a few or even many people’s lives by awakening them to the fact that they can rewrite their stories and make them love stories through forgiveness?

    I like this challenge. The clock is ticking on our lives. Even if we have wasted too much time up to this point, we can break the cycle and move toward a positive legacy. What a wake-up call. What encouragement.

    Wake up call. We only have so much time. Now time to give love.

    So, what is the endpoint of our existence? What are we supposed to become? If we are actually supposed to become something—anything at all—then there must be an Author of this becoming and that Author is God.

    I for one do not want to leave my own mess for others to clean up when I am gone. I’d rather leave a sense of purpose and forgiveness for others to grow on. This gives meaning to my life and as one of your earlier posts made clear, finding meaning is so important.
