Inheritance

My husband and I moved. From one house to another. From one county to another. About 100 miles. The major portion of our “stuff” was hauled in one day. A long, tiring day.

Last weekend, with a uhaul rental, we moved the remainder of our stuff.

I couldn’t believe how much stuff we had. Stuff I’d forgotten.

When reading Galatians last night, I came across this verse:

“Because you are God’s children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into us to call out, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer slaves but God’s children. Since you are God’s children, God has also made you heirs.” (God’s Word)

A heir of God?

What a provocative thought.

I don’t think God’s legacy to us is stuff.

My parents died too young. Dad died in the 1990s and Mom died a few years afterward. I think she missed her identity with Dad, but they were good parents. And I still carry visions of their expressions of love and integrity, unforgotten. The visions aren’t a burden to haul around, but are uplifting.

I’m not an heir of hate, weakness, and death.

If God is eternal Life, I must be an heir of vitality.

If God is love, I must be an heir of loving kindness.

If God is Mind, I must be an heir of intelligence.
