One Month to Live: Legacy (Psalm 78:1-8)Pastor Joe Sanders, September 9, 2012
Part of the One Month to Live series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We don't like to think about death, but thinking about our inheritance doesn't bother us too much, does it? We like the idea that someone will leave us things, usually things of some great worth. Stocks, bonds, real estate, cars, houses, cash, jewelry- all things that we'd love to receive from our loved ones when they pass on. But how often do we think about what we'll leave behind? That probably bothers us quite a bit more because it causes us to think not only about our death but also about how we're living right now. Then, when we consider what we will really pass on to our loved ones it can get even more uncomfortable. We want to live a life that not only blesses people materially when we are gone but leaves them with something that matters, that is life-changing. Are you living a life of purpose? What is your legacy?

1Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: 3Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. 4We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. 5For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: 6That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: 7That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: 8And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God. (KJV)
