The Life-Pledge

Deeds of land of the Twelve Tribes are described. However, the lands are unlike those that are bought with a bank’s money as a mortgagea “death-pledge” upon it. These are inherited lands given by God alone to God’s chosen people through Moses.

We live in a society where we earn, buy and sell possessions and properties; only then do we will them as inheritance. But the Psalmist declares in 89:11 “The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; the world and all its fullness.” Today be aware of all that you have as given to you by the Lord. You have something greater, given by the death of Jesus on the cross. He is the inheritance of God—a “life-pledge.” Christ shares this with you in the inner Kingdom where he calls us to live by this outpouring of God’s love. Approach with the Magi and adore.
