Our spiritual inheritance

Among the parables Jesus shared is the story of the prodigal son (see Luke 15:11–32). The young man asked for his inheritance early, before his father died. As the story goes, he wasted this gift with “riotous living.” When he found himself impoverished and without friends, he chose to return to the family home, where he thought he could perhaps work as a servant. To his surprise, when he arrived, his father ran to greet him. He gave him a fine robe and ring and requested that a dinner be made to celebrate his son’s return. Most important, his father then gave him an indestructible, spiritual inheritance—forgiveness and love and the assurance of his unbroken sonship. This inheritance was not vulnerable to loss or corruption.

I am forever grateful that my parents shared their love of God and Christian Science with our family by word and deed. 

We'd love to hear from you!
