The heir

After Galatians 4:1-7

The heir will inherit

the family estate, but

consider that one word: will.

The heir is wealthy,

but not yet.

The heir controls much,

But not yet.

Inheritance is a future

thing. In the meantime,

the heir is managed 

by parents, guardians, 

overseers, until the time

is full.


But (another critical word),

when the time is full,

when the time has come,

the heir is set free,

receives the inheritance,

assumes the power
