Today's Scripture: "A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men." Pr. 18:16

5716. Giving is living. JG


See it.

Giver liver

Live it.

It never fails that in the process of reclaiming old video footage, I see something that makes me thankful. For example, my green Ford Ranger truck was background in one. It actually was my brother's truck that was damaged in the now famous Memphis Summer Storm of 2003. A tree fell across the top of the cab causing structural and slight functional damage to the vehicle. In buying a new vehicle, my brother decided my need of a service vehicle was greater than the trade-in value and gave me the truck. Years earlier I was without transportation and trusted God to provide it. A friend wanted me to work with him and felt God wanted him to give me his red S-10 truck. God's trucks has served me well for years.

Driving a new car is nice and some seem to live for the smell of a new car's interior. But adding 19% to the cost of the vehicle for depreciation in the first year is not nice. I am a blessed man in that the gifts of people who love me have appreciated far more than that. Whoever shares with me also shares in the work I do, the blessing and reward.

Pray it.

I lack nothing, God, but enough words to praise You.
