If you were born into a royal family, destined to become a king or a queen, key questions about your future would be answered before they came up: questions about where you'd live, your income, your responsibilities. The same might be true, to some extent, if you were born into certain other families having strong traditions. From the start you might be considered heir to a particular job, a decided life style, a special location. It would be your birthright.
But for most of us our birthright isn't a big issue. Unless, of course, we begin to think in terms of divine parenthood as opposed to human parenthood. Then the question of birthright takes on a new dimension. The Bible says that as children of God we are "heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ." Rom.8:17. If you think about it, that's saying a lot. Since we are children of God we do have a spiritual birthright, one that, when understood, makes a big impact on our everyday lives.
