CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
In anticipation of the upcoming holiday on Monday, I want to give you all something to think about over the weekend. That’s right – Monday is…World Hippo Day! Do you know there’s only two places in the world to see hippopotamuses is in the wild? One is Africa. The other is Columbia, South America.
The former Columbian drug lord, Pablo Escobar (not a HIM!), was killed by police almost 30 years ago. With a net worth of around $30 billion, he was believed to be the seventh richest person in the world. He used that wealth to buy houses, cars, islands, TWO submarines… He also started his own personal zoo, with elephants, rhinos, lions….and hippos.
In 1991, Escobar surrendered to authorities and the Columbian government seized all his assets and wealth. They turned over his exotic animals to the Colombian Zoo, but there were four hippopotamuses they didn’t know what to do with because the zoo had no infrastructure for them. So, authorities decided to just release them into the Magdalena River.
In Columbia, hippos have no natural predators. There are no seasonal droughts, like there are in Africa. There is an abundance of food. Today, the hippo population is exploding in Columbia. The conditions have been described as a “Hippo Heaven” and estimates suggest that there will be thousands of hippos in Columbia within a few decades.
As the seventh richest man in the world, Pablo Escobar had tremendous potential to impact his family and his community. He could have done so much good with his wealth and talent! But just 30-years after his death the lasting legacy of this man, who once lived like a king, is that he inadvertently created a Hippo Heaven. That’s it. That’s it?!? What a ridiculous legacy!
So, here’s the question that I want you to reflect on this weekend;
“What will be said of your life 30 years after you are dead?”
That day is coming. What will your children and grandchildren say about your memory? Will it be something inadvertent and ridiculous…because you just let life happen? Will they say nothing at all – because you lived an unremarkable existence? Will they remember you in a way that you wish they would not? Or, during the short time you have on earth, will you live with intentionality and have a passion to leave a great legacy?
For generations after you are gone, will they tell stories of your greatness and of how your life and faith was such a blessing to the family?
If you want to know how to leave a meaningful legacy, start by reading Psalm 112. It tells us “the generation of the upright will be blessed” and “the righteous…will be remembered forever”.
Psalm 112 describes the characteristics of a memorable man, a man who will leave a legacy of greatness.
Read through this list, and reflect on each trait. Ask yourself how this characterizes your life – or what, if anything, you will change starting today…
The man who will leave a legacy of greatness…
- He lives a righteous and blameless life (Psalm 112:4)
- When others disappoint him or don’t meet his expectations, that man…gives them grace (Psalm 112:4).
- When others wrong him, that man….shows mercy (Psalm 112:4).
- With his time and money, that man….is generous (Psalm 112:5 and 9)
- That man…loves justice (Psalm 112:5)
- That man…is not afraid of the future because he trusts in the Lord (Psalm 112:7-8)
- To those who are less fortunate than him, that man…shows compassion (Psalm 112:4)
- That man…fears the Lord (Psalm 112:1)
That’s a description of a man that I would certainly tell stories about long after he were gone.
Be that man! Be a little more like him today than you were yesterday! Be that man!
Psalm 112 (ESV)
1 Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments!
2 His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; he is gracious, merciful, and righteous.
5 It is well with the man who deals generously and lends; who conducts his affairs with justice.
6 For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered forever.
7 He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.
8 His heart is steady; he will not be afraid, until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
9 He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn is exalted in honor.
10 The wicked man sees it and is angry; he gnashes his teeth and melts away; the desire of the wicked will perish!
