We all plant seeds of our legacy and those seeds will produce something. The quality of the legacy is determined by the nature of the seed. The quality of the seed is determined by the quality of the character, but the legacy is the fruit that springs forth. Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee expands on the character is the issue” theme, by exploring the legacy of character. Whether in politics, marriage, education, or even business, what matters most is what lasts beyond the immediate to the ultimate. The challenge for all who wish not only to have character but to live a life of integrity is to live for those things which will build a legacy that increases in value over time. The culture of our society today is concerned only with the next election, the sequel potential, the next big media hype instead of being concerned with the next generation, the enduring quality of a story, or contributing to a worldview that lasts beyond one's lifetime. What matters most is what lasts beyond the immediate to the future.
