LEGACY and MEN

If you could be known for anything—what would you desire to be remembered for? Would you like to be known as a philanthropist? Would you like to be known as a drunk, or what about an addict? Would you like to be known for being good, frugal, and virtuous in business?

Husbands, if you have any wisdom, here is what you would like to be known for: you would like to be known as one who loved his wife, cherishing her, and protecting her. You would like to be known as a man who lead his family in the straight and narrow way the Lord paved. You would like to be known as a man to whom each one of the Lord’s servant could depend. Wouldn’t you like to be known like this? You can. RT
