Birthright 


What is a birthright?


Birthright


A particular right of possession or privilege a person has from birth, especially as the eldest son. 

There is a famous story in Indian Mythology about  "Little Dhruv" He was the eldest son of King Uttanpada who had two wives Suniti and Suruchi. Dhruv was the son of Suniti who was the first wife and Suruchi had a son named Uttam.

Birthright
Because Dhruv was elder it was his right to become next King, but his father loved his second wife more than Dhruv’s mother and she convinced King to send Dhruv and her mother away and live in the forest . One day Dhruv went to the palace and he sat on his father’s lap. When Suruchi saw that she pushed him down from his father’s lap and told him that it is not his right to seat there. Little Dhruv came with tears to her mother and explained everything that had happened. Her mother told her if you want a place then pray to God. Soon after that Dhruv went into Forest and started praying. When God appeared him and asked him what is his wish? He said I want a place from where no one can push me down. So God made him Star. This star called the Pole Star or Dhruva Tara is still seen shining in the sky. It is the only star that has a permanent place and does not change its position in the sky. All the other stars and constellations move around it throughout the year.


Birthright
Travelers look up to the Dhruva Tara in the night to find their way. Why I shared this story with you? Because it was his
birthright to seat on his father's lap and when he prayed to God he got a better position than that. We as a Children of God has a birthright in Christ to shine like the stars in heaven. 


And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. Daniel 12:3 (KJV) 


Prayer: Dear God as little Dhruv prayed and you have given him his place to live. I pray that your Kingdom should come here on this earth and in the ages to come make us Stars which will shine forever and ever. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen. 


In Christ
