Faith In Our Time

 

Make Waves

Recent news reports have circulated about the decline of Americans who believe in God.  A recent pew research poll found only 70% of Americans listing themselves as Christian.  That number is down 3 points from just a few years ago.  Younger Americans are especially abandoning the traditional faith of their parents.

In 2015, college graduates are primarily concerned with building their resumes at this point in their lives.   However,  in his essay concerning faith,  Mark Sanborn speaks of resume versus legacy.  His article points out the following:

Resume

1. What You’ve Accomplished

2. Results

3. The Money You’ve Made

4. The Impression You Leave

5. Your Career

6. What You Learned

7. How You Improved

Legacy

1. What You’ve Contributed

2. Relationships                                                

3. The Difference You’ve Made

4. The Impact You Have

5. Your Organization, Family and  Community

6. What You Taught

7. How You Helped Others to Improve Others

If I could reach the ear of young America today,  what I would most express is: Work on legacy at the onset of your career.   In fact,  make it a part of your career.  For me,  legacy gives life and is eternal while resume is simply transactional and fleeting.   I do not believe a person can do true legacy without an eternal perspective.  I also believe an eternal perspective requires a true connection to God.  For me,  that means a relationship with Jesus Christ.

What’s your opinion:  Which is more important Resume or Legacy?

About Marlene Hensley Hucks

Marlene is a mentor, teacher, cross-cultural trainer, storyteller, writer, and for those who have been under her leadership or simply sat across the table from her, she is a mirror of destiny. Her love of word and image were formed early on by one of her heroes, Dr. Seuss. If you asked those who know her well, they would describe her a compassionate, funny, wise, curious, honest, real, strong, sensitive and totally human which comes out as she teaches and writes. She sees all of life, even the most mundane, through faith and believes that who we become as we live this side of the veil is what matters not the journey itself or our circumstances. Marlene has spent her life crossing bridges. She comes from a diverse background of ministry roles and contexts as well as has transitioned in and out of the business world. Having lived outside the country as well as traveled extensively Marlene (or Marleny as she is known in Spanish) has a fascination with culture causes her to live her life within a global mosaic no matter where her feet are planted. Marlene currently lives in South Carolina with her husband David, who owns a marketing company but who she says is a “crime fighter”, bringing light into darkness in their systems of their city. When cleaning his cape, Marlene partners with Shiloh Place Ministries (www.shilohplace.org) as well as travels speaking and teaching.
