Luke 12 – THE offer of reward from God to His sons is the final proof of His true personality. To an abstract Supreme Being it would be impossible; to a Father it is not only possible but natural; and to those who are truly His sons the reward is the occasion of responsive delight in that personality. When we are pleased with a gift the choice of which conveys the very personality of a beloved friend, we say, “It is just like him (or her) to send me that”. And it is just like the Heavenly Father to give His children the kingdom: the gift is as it were a part of Himself; He has planned it throughout the ages: He has “prepared” it with loving care. And for His children the gift is the bond of love.
