Recently I presented my daughter with a special gift — the gold necklace, bracelet, and earrings that her grandfather gave to her grandmother on their 50th anniversary, a treasure then given to me by my father after my mother's death. This legacy gift, to be passed on in the family, required an appraisal in order that a rider might be added to my daughter's insurance, in case event of loss or theft.

crossHow blessed that our gift of salvation has been secured, not with an appraisal of our worth, but by faith in Jesus Christ because of His sacrifice on the cross. In thanksgiving to Him, we, in turn, share God's Word with others so they too might  know of  this priceless inheritance.

nullLutheran Women in Mission have continued the rich legacy of sharing the gospel of Christ for over 75 years. Please consider a donation at or mail to the LWML Office, 3558 S. Jefferson Ave., St Louis MO 63118. Note the donation as LWML 75th Anniversary Thank Offering.

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world (Matt: 25:34).
