Focusing on inheritance is bondage.

 

You’re totally lost. If your dad or mum worked for it, why can’t you? And suppose your parents live long, for how long will you be stuck in life? If they took you to school, what else are you waiting for?

I love and respect my dad a lot. He follows me on this page. But I remember telling him when I was 18 that I will never inherit any property from him. My dad lectures in a couple of universities and I’m his only son. I’ve one sister who’s equally doing well in life. But none of us eyes our dad’s properties.

Focusing on inheritance is bondage. Focusing on inheritance limits your imagination and productivity. Focusing on inheritance confines you to a very narrow perimeter. There’re people who can’t travel because they’re fixated on their dad’s rental houses. Others take their parents to court to allot them estate immediately. We even have extremes who kill their dads so that they inherit now.

There’s nothing wrong with inheritance. Indeed, the Bible says a good man leaves inheritance to his grandchildren – Proverbs 13:22. But inheritance should not make you postpone your life. Inheritance is a blessing when every heir apparent is productive. If you can’t do anything on your own, you’d blow up your heritage. When minds are empty, siblings kill each other over inherited assets.

That’s why the Bible says in Galatians 4 that inheritance is for mature people. Till you mature up, you don’t deserve heritage. Maturity is measured by responsibility. Immature people feel entitled by birthright. Your parents have a right to will whoever they want. If you dropped out of school, you might also give up on the business your parents leave behind. Irresponsible people should not be entrusted with more.
