The Heritage We Leave

2 Timothy 4:6–8  (ID: 0103)

Life’s fragility and death’s reality rightly lead many to question what kind of legacy they will leave behind. In his second letter to Timothy, Paul provided examples of those who passed on a godly heritage through their purposeful lifestyles. As Alistair Begg discusses these individuals’ influence, he encourages us to examine the direction of our own lives and consider the legacies we are building.

6For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. 7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.
