You are my inheritance, O Lord.
Most of us are like the apostle Paul who told Timothy. I am grateful to him to be considered worthy because of my past I was a horrible man but God showed me mercy and by his grace I am part of the rest of the believers in Jesus Christ.
What is our story? What does our family tree look like. Everyone is interested in their ancestry these days, but more important than our physical DNA is our spiritual DNA. We all have a family tree and we may have a distant relative just like the Apostle Paul was before he found Jesus but can you trace God’s hand on your family also and see where He was working in lives that eventually led to you. My mom has started writing her spiritual biography and it includes family members who had no spiritual connection at all but they met someone who becomes part of the family tree who did love Jesus and the seeds were sown. Generations later we are blessed to see God’s hand continue to work in the next generation.
Psalm 78 says “You show me the path of life, fullness of joy in your presence, and the delights of your right hand. You are my inheritance.
