THE LEGACY DECEPTION
A legacy is a coin of the world.
A man’s legacy is supposedly how the world will regard that man after he is gone. CLUE: The world is not permanent but only a temporary state of affairs. Those who put their faith and trust in the world and it’s “legacy” are bound to be disappointed.
Along with money, power, fame and pleasure, “legacy” is used by the world to deceive men. The deception is that man should spend his time working for the things of the world; that the things of this world have lasting value.
They do not.
The things of this present world will not only pass away, they will not be remembered by those who will remain.
“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
The world cannot offer a true legacy because the world has nothing which will last. All that is in this world will pass away. All that is in the world, that the world offers, is sin.
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.“
—1 John 2:15-16
Regardless of what men promise, nothing of this world–including memories–will persevere.
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”
Any time the reader hears of someone discussing someone’s “legacy,” the reader can be assured that this is little more than a fool’s errand. Do not waste time worrying about what the world will think of you: the world will pass away and all that is of the world will be remembered no more.
Regard not the things of this world. Those who do are headed for eternal disappointment.
“And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.“
—1 John 2:17
