Through cover stories and documentaries, media outlets around the world have pondered the legacy of Billy Graham. They have asked, and tried to answer, how will he be remembered? What did he leave behind?
My father would want to be remembered for two things. That he lived a life obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ and that he faithfully preached God’s Gospel.
As his son and namesake, I would add to that legacy what he passed on to his family: integrity and compassion. Billy Graham was a loving father who taught his children values found in the Word of God and lived those values both privately and publicly. My parents left us children a tangible legacy, but more valuable was the heritage they left in how they lived their lives.
