If Children are the Inheritance of God, When do We Cease to be the Inheritance?

I was just thinking after reading bartolibr's post. As a teenager, it's difficult enough to decide what we are, caught in a purgatory it seems between adulthood and childood.

Quote:
by bortolibr
"... and for you that is father and mother I have a message: the Bible says in the book of psalms 127 verse 03 that the children are inheritance of the Lord. and the fruit of the womb and its reward that is to say its largest treasure, therefore they take care very well of the children because they are its great treasure dice for GOD."
So when do we officially become no longer an inheritance to God? When do we cease being children in God's eyes, and thus cease to be the innocent, happy bubbly things we see bouncing around?

Just a question.

When we stop beleiving in Santa Claus.

On another note, I think it means that we come into the inheritance as we mature.

That's a point dlink, but what about the 9 year old who lost her virginity due to rape? Isn't she still a child none the less?

Mayhaps you're taking the phrase a tad too literally?

seeing how it was not mutual, I would think that she is still considered a child.

In short, we never cease to be our parents' inheritance.

The line you're considering refers to a physical relationship, not an emotional one. It doesn't matter what happens to you or your parents. Even death cannot change the fact that you are their child; their "inheritance."

You can read a more esoteric meaning in the line, in the same sort of vien as the meaning of "The sins of the father will be visited on his children and his children's children." In that line, the acts of the parent affect the lives of his children, if not forever then for a long time, regardless of what happens to the parent. Your line is somewhat the opposite - the life of the child affects the parent regardless of the details. Even after the child leaves, is married, banished, whatever, there is still some residual impact on the parent. And, like my quote, there is a feeling of retribution - that the parent will get what they deserve. (i.e. a good parent will get a good child, and a bad parent will get a bad child. Of course, if you bring God into it, a parent who is lacking in, say, patience, might rightly inherit a very trying child. Contrapasso is a wonderful thing. )

...a blatant person.

If I inherited something, I'd really like to know what it is!
I'm tired of being broke.
