DAILY READINGS: Deuteronomy 5:1-33; Ecclesiastes 7:1-29; Luke 8:1-21

To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:4, NKJV

The story is told of a newly saved man who was sitting on the porch reading his Bible. A friend passing by stopped and asked, ”Tom, what are you reading?” “Oh,” said Tom, “I’m reading a legacy, and I’m so happy to see all to which I am an heir.” “Who died?” asked the friend. The young believer replied, “The one who died was my Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, and now His inheritance is mine!” —E. MacLelland

Keep the eye single, the head upward lifted;
Watch for the glory of earth’s coming King;
Lo! o’er the mountain tops light is now breaking;
Heirs of the kingdom, rejoice ye and sing. —Lowell Mason
