First Steps – May 16, 2022

May 16, 2022

At a recent graduation ceremony for a daughter of a family friend, the CEO of UPS gave the address. She inspired the graduates to Lead to Inspire, Serve to Create and Give to Remain. Over this past weekend, I reflected on her words. Though she has a very accomplished resume, she realized her work recorded would never be the same as a legacy. What remains is not a work record but a legacy.

What do you want your legacy to be? What do you want others to remember about you? Great questions! I think borrowing her words would do well. Lead to inspire people so that they are better because they knew you.  Serve others to create space and possibilities for those around you. Give to things that will long outlive you. You don’t have to be a CEO of a Fortune 500 Company to have a legacy. Begin now! Lead, Serve and Give.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done.” – Philippians 4:6
