Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 807 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
The Best Legacy – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our five days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 807 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little bit of additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Thomas Scott, and it is, “A man cannot leave a better legacy to the world than a well-educated family.”
The Best Legacy
What we choose and the decisions that we make each day become the legacy that we are. The impact that you have on your family should be your most important impact. The two most important things to teach your family is to love God and follow His precepts, and then teach them to love others and treat everyone with kindness and patience. In Matthew 22:37-40 , “Jesus replied, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
Once those two truths are firmly in place, teach your family to grow in learning, to work hard, and as John Wesley is quoted as saying:
“Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”
That’s a wrap for today’s Wisdom Unplugged. If you enjoy these quotes, I have created and published a searchable database of over 10,000 quotes that I have collected for many years. If you would like free access to my database of inspirational quotes, the link is available on the main page of Wisdom-Trek.com.
Just as you enjoy these nuggets of wisdom, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
