Kingdom Revelator – Issue 40
Welcome to Kingdom Revelator, we pray that as you read this magazine the Holy Spirit will draw you closer to our loving Father in Heaven and to Jesus His beloved Son, our brother
and Redeemer. I was recently watching the World Para Athletic Championships on TV. There were some very exciting races. I cannot imagine how much training and dedication is needed to reach that level of fitness and strength. In a number of interviews with the athletes I was struck by how many said that they had first taken up their sport seriously after watching the Paralympic Games that were held in London in 2012. When they saw other people with similar abilities to theirs, achieving so much they realized that they also could do great things. So although the athletes in 2012 were competing to win medals they were also having an impact on the lives of many people who watched the games, inspiring them to take up sport. They call it the ‘Legacy of 2012’.
This made me think about what my legacy is. Do I inspire people to do great things? Do I encourage
others? Do people remember what I have done with gratitude? We all have an influence on those
around us. We meet and interact with many people each day and how we treat them can make a real
lasting difference to them. We can be a positive, inspiring influence or we can say something that leaves them feeling worse about themselves. Let us treat everyone with respect and dignity and ray
for the grace to inspire others by our words and actions.
