A Giving God
by Rick Boxx
February 25, 2010
Occasionally we need a reminder that God truly cares. An urban core pastor I know desired to attend a conference, but things were too tight financially.
He called his friend who invited him and said, "I'm staring at the airfares on the computer and my checkbook. I'm sorry, but there's no way I can go."
Moments later a lady stopped by the church. The pastor had performed her daughter's wedding years earlier and had never paid him an honorarium. She handed him a check for the exact amount needed for the airfare.
Matthew 7:11 teaches, "If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!"
God is a giver of good gifts.
