Consider Your Inheritance

by Pastor Ken

But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them. From infancy, you have known the holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith, which is in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:14-15

When you read the question asking about your inheritance, did you immediately say to yourself, “Nothing? My parents are still alive.” Or, “They had nothing to leave me.”

But is that really true? I never thought my father left me anything until about a year ago. Shortly after I was born, my father disappeared. If he wouldn’t have left my entire family could have died because he was being accused of being a traitor. I didn’t know this until last year. But now I am thankful. My inheritance from him was my life.

My life is also my children’s inheritance from their grandfather even though they never knew him.

Today is Grandparent Day. If you know your grandparents, make sure you take some time today to let them know you love them and are thankful for the heritage of your family’s history. Likewise, encourage your children to do the same for their grandparents, your parents. And above all, make sure you spend time thanking your Heavenly Father, God, for the inheritance He has given you.

Father in Heaven, thank You for the gift of grandparents. Help me to let them know how much they mean to me. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
