Many of the "good kings" did not have a good example in their earthly father, but they chose to follow some one who had left a good legacy. You have the choice of what type of legacy you can leave regardless of who has led you until now. If you do not have a good example, find one in a mentor. Our ultimate mentor is Jesus Christ, and His legacy is His life, death, and resurrection. We can live a legacy of "blessing forward"!
