Bible Notes on “Who Forsakes an Inheritance?”

The scripture reference below goes with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.

Hebrews 12:15-17  (“Coming short of the grace of God” is roughly synonymous with “forsaking your inheritance.”  Don’t be like Esau who failed to appreciate the importance of spiritual things.  Instead, practice the virtues of morality and godliness that you might receive the full measure of your inheritance.  How do you practice virtue?  You can only do it successfully with God’s help.  See Practicing the Presence of Christ.)

If you are familiar with the Bible, or if you want to hear more from it, you may want to read one of my other blogs: A Bible Reader’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.

Any quotations of Scripture are taken from the NASB, unless otherwise noted.
