A Beautiful Heritage

I just love reunions, don’t you? Whatever the reason, whether it’s a family reunion, class reunion, or a church homecoming, it’s great fun to see folks you haven’t seen for a while, and of course, those you see more frequently. I recently attended a very special reunion, one that gave me much joy, and also much food for thought.

A few decades ago, I was part of an energetic group of teenage girls of a wide age range who played baseball and basketball together, attended high school and church together, sang in the choir together, and yes, even dated some of the same fellows! In that group, we developed “best” friend status which endures even today.

As we enjoyed our luncheon together that reunion day, laughed and chatted and reminisced, I couldn’t help but wonder what the real foundation was of this unique fellowship. My initial conclusions came quickly, but I’ve continued to explore this idea since that day.

We share a blessed heritage!

It wasn’t just that we attended the same church, but that church was our common spiritual birthplace. The Biblical principles upon which we’ve all built our lives were learned there. Our home lives supported Christian values. Parents of one were parent-figures to the others. The men and women of the church were good examples to us all. Lastly, we had a wonderful mentor in a young woman who coached our teams and was a leader in our Sunday School and Mission organization. She influenced us in ways and to a depth she probably did not know then and probably doesn’t know today.

My heart is filled with thanksgiving for this heritage.

One of my favorite passages of Scripture is Psalm 16. Verses 5 and 6 says this:

“The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You support my lot.
The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places. Indeed, my heritage is beautiful
to me.” (NASB)

We are all influencing others all of the time, whether we are aware of it or not. What kind of
legacy are we building? May future reunions reveal a “beautiful heritage” indeed.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
