Grow Up, Mentoring Moments, the 1 min blog
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; Galatians 4:1 KJV
When her mom died she left her a fortune. Suddenly, she was worth an estimated $2.7 billion. She owned companies, shares, artwork, a private jet and an island. And yet, the day she came into this wealth, very little in her world changed. She had no direct access or authority over her wealth because she was three years old.
This true story reminds me of our Kingdom family. When you and I were born again we came into a very prosperous family. We are heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ. (Romans 8:17) But until we commit to growing up spiritually, very little in our lives will change.
What better motivation do we need to become more like Jesus? God desires that we grow up in every way, through a loving relationship with Him. It’s the key to gaining access to Heaven and authority on earth.
Success and Progress!
