From my 2009 Journal. Scott and I are out of town visiting our middle daughter who is pregnant with our first grand-baby. We needed some milk and a vegetable for dinner, so we sent Scott to the grocery store for these two items. Ladies, you can already predict what happened . . . He returned with three bags of newborn diapers (not needed for another five months), a box of cereal, some salad dressing (both of which we already had on hand but he didn’t know it), three bags of cookies, the milk, the requested veggie, and some tea.
I started to grouse about his over-kill when the Lord struck me with this thought: “This is like Me—an over-abundant, extravagant, generous, over-flowing, more-than-you-need kind of God. Do not spurn generosity.”
Thank You, Lord, for Your extravagant gifts and for my generous husband.
Thank you for this. I have a husband like Scott, who buys things like ice cream and crackers, whatever, NOT on the list, when I send him for chicken and veg for dinner. I like the generosity angle of this post. I may take me months to eat what wasn’t on the list, but it’s there when I want it or need it.
