Eugene T. Suter, Jr. was a student at Yale University.  While he was a student, his father died and left him an inheritance of about $400,000, but Eugene refused to accept it.  The trustees of his estate, in frustration at this turn of events, took the young man to court to force him to accept the estate.  The judge however ruled that Eugene had a legal right to refuse the bequest, and he forever cut off the young man from his family fortune.  

   Foolish?  I think so, but how many more are those who foolishly refuse the riches of the kingdom of God.  I am amazed to see people over and over who refuse to receive the grace of our Loving God.  I am like Paul who said, "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he (God) has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints."  I keep praying, sharing, and loving--all in hopes that someday they will accept their inheritance that God provided through the death of His only Son.  

   Do you know someone like this?  Pray with Paul and me!
