Galatians 4:1-7

Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

 

Además digo: Entre tanto que el heredero es niño, en nada difiere del siervo, aunque es señor de todo; mas está bajo tutores y mayordomos hasta el tiempo señalado por el padre. Así también nosotros, cuando éramos niños, estábamos en esclavitud bajo los rudimentos del mundo. Mas venido el cumplimiento del tiempo, Dios envió a su Hijo, hecho de mujer, hecho bajo la ley, para que redimiese a los que estaban bajo la ley, a fin de que recibiésemos la adopción de hijos. Y por cuanto sois hijos, Dios envió el Espíritu de su Hijo a vuestros corazones, el cual clama: Abba, Padre. Así que ya no eres siervo, sino hijo; y si hijo, también heredero de Dios por Cristo.

 

It is easy to think we are better than other people, or they may think they are better than us. Money and possessions don’t make us better. Power doesn’t make us better. Nothing makes us better than the other human. We are all children of the Living God. Whatever we have done and whatever we will do will not make anyone better. It just comes down to accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and mind you….that doesn’t make you better than the person who has not yet done that. When we completely realize that, there is a new freedom that only the Holy Spirit can provide.

Psalm 49:6-7

They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him

de los que confían en sus bienes y se jactan de la abundancia de sus riquezas? Nadie puede en manera alguna redimir a su hermano, ni dar a Dios rescate por él

Our wealth and material goods mean nothing. They really don’t mean squiddily. God doesn’t care about what we have, but He cares about our hearts. Do we trust Him? Sometimes He allows us not to have so that God can show us the blessings and grace He offers so freely. We need to trust Him. He is really all we need.
