Numbers 18:20 “Then the Lord said to Aaron, ‘You shall have no inheritance in their land nor own any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the sons of Israel.’”
The Lord told Aaron that the Levites would not receive an inheritance from the Lord in land or possessions. Oh no, they would receive something so much better. Their portion and their inheritance would be the Lord Himself. Wow! No other tribe was told that. Only the Levites. And…so are we!
We are joint heirs of the kingdom. We are a child of the King. We have been promised all He has. No other people on earth has been promised that. Only those who call His Son Savior can claim that prize. We are a blessed people.
Your children may not be old enough to understand inheritance yet. But, if they are, explain to them that one day when you die all that belongs to you will belong to them. That may either excite them or depress them, depending on what you own. And then one day when they die, all that they have will be left to their children. That’s the normal way of things.
What will you leave them? Some deeds or money? How about some jewelry or family heirlooms? The most important thing you can leave them is your legacy as a man or woman of God. Leave them the knowledge you find in God’s Word. Leave them a heavenly inheritance by leading them to Jesus.
I don’t know about you, but I want to invest my life in leaving behind things that point others to Jesus. Earthly things will fade away. Money may lose its value. But God is ours for eternity.
