Part 3 – Pleasantly Good

It’s storytelling time! Enjoy the gift!

(You can find a spoken version here)

Today I want to encourage you with a story.

I recently bought a new pair of earphones. In the box came a second pair of earphones with a note from the seller that it was a gift from the company to support the customers at this time.

What a pleasant surprise!

I was very happy about this gift.

But then I tried using the earphones I had bought and it somehow would not fit and keep falling off! Urgh! It was so irritating!

This morning I remembered the gift and I tried those earphones on. Guess what? They fit perfectly!

I then cried out to God: “God, what am I trying to buy when I can get it all from you for free!”

Just think about it. God knows what’s good for you.

“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good [טוֹב (tob)], and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.

Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live.”

Isaiah 55:1-3a NIV

God is the only one who is good! So pleasantly good!

Let us stop striving by trying to “buy” things from Him or even the enemy. Let us receive for free and give away for free. Does that sound good [טוֹב (tob)]?
