Lord Ask Us How
I'm taking a little break from the evening's work of packing more Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. And I'm sitting in my living room staring at the lettering on a cardboard box. I know it's probably from a local company called "Lord Corporation" but its message makes me ponder....
Lord, ask us how.
--Lord, ask us how we think we can come up with a better plan than Yours.
--Lord, ask us how we think we can lack anything when You have promised us everything.
--Lord, ask us how we can waste the resources You've given us--time, talents, money--when so many in the world have never heard of Your love.
--Lord, ask us why we aren't "about the Father's business" just like You were.
And when He asks us...what will we say?
Okay...I'm heading back to pack a few more shoe boxes now...
Because every box packed means one more child will have a tangible way to know God's love.
Every one might be an answer to the Lord's questions.
