Legacy vs. Destiny

I Have A DreamI have been thinking a lot lately about my role in life. What God wants me to accomplish? What can I achieve? And a bunch of other things. In the end I have determined that I have a calling but not necessarily a destiny. I have a mission that God wants me to accomplish but I don’t have an inevitable outcome. What I have is an opportunity is to leave a legacy. Here are a few key differences between destiny and legacy.

  • Destiny says I am entitled
  • Legacy says I am responsible
  • Destiny looks for “it” to happen
  • Legacy strives to make “it” happen
  • Destiny relies on fate
  • Legacy relies on faith

So which is it for you? Are you destined for greatness or have you been given an opportunity to do something great? And what are you going to do about it?
