Slave or son?

I really like Glen Scrivener's opening to his sermon on Gal. 4:1-3. Here it is: 
Two boys at work in a field. (Gal 4:1-3).
They look the same, but they couldn’t be more different.
One is a slave, the other is a son.  One is property, the other is heir.  One calls the owner “Boss”.  The other calls him “Daddy.”
But from a distance you can’t tell.
In church, slaves and sons sit side by side.  And, from a distance, you can’t tell which is which.  But actually there is a profound difference in their relationship to the Father – and this difference is decisive.
Yes, it is.
