“Do not walk through time without leaving worthy evidence of your passing.” – Pope John 23rd
The times in which we live are our narrative. These are our times; we are writing our story.
We have the opportunity to leave a legacy – a legacy that will outlast us and change the future.
We are blessed with skills and talents. Our God-given abilities come with responsibility – the responsibility to develop ourselves into instruments worthy of our purpose. Simply living – simply going through the motions on autopilot isn’t worthy of our abilities. We must dedicate ourselves to more; we must dedicate ourselves to leave evidence of our work.
Each student we reach, each relationship we build, and each decision we make has the potential to influence the future. We lead, teach, and learn every single day. The events we experience, and our response to each event, are part of our narrative. No moment is too small, no relationship is so inconsequential that it requires less than our focus and skill.
As you would walk through your day – as you walk through our time – be present in every decision, be skilled and intentional in your response to events, and be aware of your focus. Make each day worthy of your skills; leave a legacy that is worthy of your passage.
One thought on “Leave worthy evidence”
I love this blog, each day is a gift. I tell my family life is short and we need to make the most of our time on earth. No matter what our job is we can make a difference in someone’s life each day, even if it is just a smile or a high five!
