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.
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)]?
