Proverbs 11:30 - The fruit of the righteous is the tree of life...
1. Intentionality - Begin with the end in mind."A wise person thinks a lot about death,

"Teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom." Psalm 90:12
An inheritance is what you leave to someone, a legacy is what you leave in someone.
"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10 (NIV)
2. Humility - Be unimpressed with yourself."Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others." Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)
3. Integrity - Be single-minded
"The Lord detests people with crooked hearts,
but he delights in those with integrity." Proverbs 11:20 (NLT)
"Walk with the wise and become wise,
for a companion of fools suffers harm." Proverbs 13:20 (NIV)
