Recently, I had a wonderful opportunity to understand and be reminded of truth through the eyes of my granddaughter.
We had just gotten ice cream when a mother of two children came into the restaurant where we were eating. The family attends church with us, and the mother explained that the family was in a difficult time and asked for prayer. After I prayed with her, I gave her a gift card that Jelly had given me to that restaurant.
Jaeli asked me why I had given the card away, and I told her that it was because they were hungry and they needed it. She said to me, “I couldn’t give Gigi’s present away!” I explained to her that every present that we get actually comes from Jesus. Sometimes He gives it to us, so that we can give it to whom He wants to have it. Jaeli then asked me, “Gigi won’t mind you listening to Jesus, will she Pops?” After I told her, “No,” she profoundly said, “Jesus can use me to love His people too!”
Your obedience makes a difference both to the hurting, and to those watching. Be blessed, and make a difference!
