You know that scripture where it says something like, if your child asks for a piece of bread your wouldn’t give him a stone? And if they ask for fish you wouldn’t give him a snake? And then it goes on to say something like just as we give good gifts to our kids so does our Father give even better gifts to us.
Ok, so I totally paraphrased that but you know what I mean.
Anyways, what’s interesting is that after this verse is the golden rule…Do unto others just as you would have them do unto you.
Interesting how those two go hand in hand sorta…God is pretty cool like that.
So, a few weeks ago this verse came into my head. I was praying and I just had the feeling. You know the one where you know you have to do something and it’s something that you really don’t want to do necessarily but nonetheless it’s like your good sense just is nowhere to be found!
And so I said, well I will just take a look and see what’s out there. And sure enough…it became one of those now or never situations that was more now than anything else.
The decision was made. I had caved. I had given in to the prayers and the wishing and hoping.
I couldn’t give him a stone. And we definitely weren’t getting a snake!
And I fought it, but the Lord was sweet when He said, as much as you want to give this to him, I want to do the same for you even more.
So, we did it!
