Spiritual Musings

my inheritance

Revelation 22:20 “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
Sky’s favorite thing to do as a toddler was to look through Grandma’s silk sarees. The brilliance of the bright colors and gold thread work would keep her enthralled for hours. So she was ecstatic when she learned that all of them would be hers one day.
However, she did not understand why she couldn’t have them right away if they were all going to be hers any way. So it was obvious that it was time to discuss the subject of death and inheritance, but it had no effect–She focused only on the loot and not Grandma’s love.
And so with great impatience she’d ask us every day . . . When is Grandma going to die?!
The Bible ends with Jesus assuring me of two things: 1) That His coming is a certainty; and 2) That He is coming quickly. For sure, my response ought to be the same as John’s–Come, Lord Jesus. Yet I should revisit, every day, the reason behind my response. Do I want the Second Coming for the loot or to be with the One I love?
