No human is an accident of nature. Or force of nature, as we may wish to flatter ourselves. The sober reality is that each of us has been honored with a part in this enterprise of earth life. Paul, the author of the letter to Ephesians, calls it an inheritance obtained in Christ. We have an inheritance in time, and into eternity, if we will confront the challenges of our environment with values, purposeful living, and faith in Jesus Christ.
