Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
okay, me giving doesn’t apply so much here, but it’s more a thing of trusting in God to provide everything i need, not stressing about having limited money, just committing it all to him and being blessed more in totally unexpected ways.
i ordered my groceries through coles online yesterday, feeling a little sick about it because i couldn’t really afford it, but a) i have no food and b) i have no way of getting to and from the shops with a large amount of shopping. so i ordered my groceries, put it on credit and waited patiently for the very nice delivery man to bring them.
as i was putting them away, i saw a packet of lamb cutlets in the top of one of the bags. “that’s odd,” i thought. “i didn’t order lamb.” so i started checking items off on the receipt. it didn’t take me too long to realise they had delivered all my groceries except the chicken breasts i ordered and had mixed that up with someone else’s meat order. so i rang them, waited for them to call me back with when the driver would be coming back to pick up the lost groceries.
“this is your lucky day,” kate, the phone operator said.
“it’s logistically too hard to come back and pick up the meat so you get to keep it. and we’ll credit your account for the undelivered chicken.”
so this is what i got:
about a kilo of lamb cutlets
465g of veal stir fry strips
460g diced beef
500g chicken breast
2 pieces of t-bone steak
300g veal leg steak
1 lamb half leg roast
anyone who does their own shopping would know that’s about $70 worth of meat. i burst out laughing, clapping my hands and shouted “thank you Lord!!!”
he is so good.
