Scripture tells us that Jesus only did what His Father told Him to do. We are really no different. It’s absolutely essential for us to know what the Father has in mind for us. Because, you see, there is a vast difference between being a slave and a son. A slave never knows the plans of his master, only the tasks he’s expected to do. He has no future, and no inheritance. However, a son will one day inherit everything his father owns, so when he is commissioned to do something for his father, he joyfully does it because he knows it will benefit the kingdom that also belongs to him. Ownership brings with it a deep and abiding sense of fulfillment and purpose.

Whenever we lose sight of Spiritual history, the present has less value. If you want to learn how to take something you didn’t pay a price for and gain value for it, then you need to increase it. By taking something given to you and increasing it, you are now paying the price for another generation. But if you only take what has been given to you and maintain it by stewarding it at the same level, then you’re not paying a price for the next generation.
