We all want to leave a good legacy. I said good-bye to a sweet friend yesterday named Granny Ruth whose legacy will affect others for generations. I’ m sure Jesus greeted her with a warm “Well done!” as she stepped through the gates of heaven. How I will miss her! I wrote a story about Granny Ruth in one of my books, Day-votions® for Grandmothers.
The Value of Brokenness The disciples could not comprehend Jesus’ words at His Last Supper with them. For three years He had taught them, fed them, and lived with them, preparing them for such a time as this. When Jesus’ fingers broke the bread and passed it out to his chosen twelve, He was telling yet another story—a true one about to unfold before their eyes.
The empty tomb was a promise in itself. But none of Jesus’ disciples understood. When Jesus died, their hearts were empty. Their world collapsed. For three years, day and night, they ate, slept, and breathed Jesus. He was Life to them. What would they do without Jesus?
