DCLM Daily Manna – A Godly Heritage

DCLM Daily Manna 8 April 2024 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — A Godly Heritage

TOPIC: A Godly Heritage (DCLM Daily Manna 8 April 2024)

KEY VERSE: “The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage” (Psalm 16:5,6).

TEXT: Psalm 16:1-11 (KJV)

1 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.

2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

8 I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.


Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the first African Secretary General of the United Nations, has more than a passing interest in politics. His grandfather, Boutros Ghali, the only Christian prime minister of Egypt, was shot by an assassin in 1910. Cairo crowds hailed his Moslem killer, but the family did not intend anyone to forget the grandfather. They adopted his given name, Boutros (Peter), and anointed the new grandchild with the same given name. The family then built a church in Cairo to honour the martyred patriarch. On his tomb were the words, “God is witness that I served my country to the best of my ability,” says Boutros-Ghali. “For a boy to grow up with such things creates an impact. I felt I would betray the tradition of our family if I didn’t play a political role.”

The “golden psalm,” under review today, expresses a confident expectation of eternal life and happiness, founded on the evidence of true attachment to God, who is the portion and goodly heritage of the righteous. The knowledge of God is the greatest inheritance we can leave behind for our children. Such is a goodly inheritance that cannot be equated with earthly possessions. It will ultimately take one to heaven, the heritage of the righteous.

As we are faced with the uncertainties of life and the vagaries of economic and social turmoil, how comforting it will be to always remember that we have a God who cares and watches over us and all that we own. He will always make ‘the lines to fall unto us in pleasant places’.

Our duty, however, will be to ensure that we remain faithful to Him, encourage everyone to live a life of holiness and serve the Lord in order to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints here and in the world to come.

A godly inheritance cannot be equated with earthly possessions.

Psalms 44-50
