George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln. Great men, great legacies. Their faces were hewn into the granite peaks of Mt. Rushmore by sculptor Gutzon Borglum and 400 other men over the span of nearly 14 years. These four men made an indelible impact on the lives of all Americans and perhaps the entire world.
According to author Chip Ingram, we all have a personal Mt. Rushmore. Think of the people who've spoken into your life. The one’s who trained you, taught you, molded you. These are the men and women who literally shaped your very existence. They are your Mt. Rushmore.
Imagine what your life would be like now if they never bothered to speak into it then.
Consider the opportunity you have to end up on the Rushmore of someone else’s life. The world is full of young men and women who are waiting, hoping, praying for someone to have an impact on them. Hoping for someone to take a risk and build a legacy in their life. Praying for someone to train them, teach them, disciple them, mold them.
Just like someone did for you.
Imagine what their life will be like if you speak into it.Now: imagine what it will be like if you don’t.
