A Legacy of Love

Posted by on Sep 25, 2012 in Family Updates, Featured, Photo Galleries, Video | 6 comments

Demonstrating genuine love might seem simple to some, but as a teenager, showing love to an irritating younger brother can be far harder than desired, but the rewards made a life-long impact.

Love Your Irritations Into Friends

Isaac, David’s older brother choose to let his younger brother tag along for an afternoon down at the creek and the turn of events left a powerful impression of love and generosity. Little did anyone know, but Isaac’s love would later take him to the point of laying down his life for the people of Mongolia.

Love Requires Sacrifice

Someone once said, you can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving. Listen to “The Fish Story” as David retells it to several hundred young people.

Isaac is now enjoying his reward in heaven sitting at the feet of Jesus, but his example lives on and has been a challenge to us. Are we willing to take the time to put others first and live our lives giving to others? Only one life, twill soon be past. Only what is done for Christ will last. Doing good to the “least of these” amounts to doing good to Christ Himself.

  5. What a wonderful memory that has had a profound impact! Not only on you but on every person who is blessed to hear it. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I’m so sorry about the loss of your brother. I lost my mom as a young girl and while I know losing a parent is much different than losing a brother (I don’t pretend to understand what you feel), I know the devastation that an incredible loss causes.

    I hope you find comfort in knowing that he is always with you, when he visits from heaven, and I hope you can sense when he is with you.

    What a great way to show your love for, and appreciation to him, by posting this article.

    God bless you guys 🙂
