BIG IDEA: Your legacy matters. The choices you make today affect your future.

KEY VERSE: Genesis 5:1b-2a (Humanity’s blessing)
When God created human beings, he made them to be like himself. He created them male and female, and he blessed them and called them “human.”

Your choices, good or bad, do not define you. My love for you defines you. In me, you are complete, so don’t pursue goals to attain my love or approval. You already have it. You are my child, and I am with you forever. Take a deep breath and soak in the moment. Rest in my love and enjoy it. 

However, the choices you make do matter. They not only affect your life but your legacy. Seek me each day and throughout the day. I care about you more than you’ll ever know. Invest in the lives of those you love and those you are beginning to befriend. Help people understand my love and encourage them to do the same with others. Follow me and live a life of blessing, which encourages and inspires. Don’t be distracted by others who want you to think or live a certain way. Trust me and my path.

Live with the end in mind. Think before you speak or act. Consider how your words or actions might impact others. You can’t control how others respond, but you can choose what you say and do, so choose wisely.
