Colossians 3:10-17

What Do Others Remember?

Just as these boys at the Banjara Tribal Ministries are influenced by those speaking, so do we have the opportunity to impact many today. 

As we continue our journey of life today, we will influence many as well.  We may refer to this as leaving a legacy.  It is certain that everyone is leaving a legacy today which is either good or bad.  Many times the focus is on big things that one does to make a difference.  But what a person says, does, and behaves on a daily basis is what really makes the difference.  It is in the daily choices and responses that character is displayed and makes lasting impact on others. 

According to the Apostle Paul in Colossians 3, we ought to be demonstrating kindness, mercy, humility, meekness, and long suffering, which is putting up with others.  Along with these things, we should be forgiving, loving, and content in Christ.  Yes, everyone makes an impact and leaves a legacy each day of their life.  The guidelines for right living and a meaningful life message are found in verses 16 and 17 or the passage for today.
