I Chronicles 29:10-14
A “legacy” … everyone is creating one! The question is, “What kind of legacy do you want to leave?” And the follow-up question is, “What are you doing now which will lead to that legacy?” All of us have a desire to make the most of our life. We want our lives to be not only enjoyable but also purposeful. How??? The answer to that question begins with GOD!
David has reached the end of his life. I Chronicles 29 paints a picture of what David desires to “leave behind.” He wants to be a generous giver whose gifts are used to “do something beautiful for God.” In his advanced age, David is now wise enough to realize that all he has and all he does is a gift from God.
