This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair. (John 11v2 NIV)

John’s reference is to Luke 7.

One way or another Mary was going to be remembered.

Do you want to be remembered?

How do you want to be remembered?

Live the life He has given you to the full.

That way you will leave a powerful legacy.

Live a life of faith, trusting in Him.

He may be able to encourage people through you long after you have gone.

Ask God what legacy He wants you to leave when you have gone.

This may be a very interesting and sobering exercise.

Write down what you will be remembered for and what you would like to be remembered for.

You will leave a long and lasting legacy.
