What does the word legacy mean? It’s something that you give to others, that lasts longer than your earthly life. What kind of legacy have you been given and by whom? What legacy did your parents give you? What values did you inherit from them? Did you receive your faith from them?
I am a very frugal person, as are my parents. My brother did not inherit the same frugality but was generous to a fault. One of my twins is just like me, and one is just like my brother in this regard. When my brother started a family, he had to learn to be more frugal. He was able to learn this because he inherited our parents’ understanding of responsibility.
