My daughter-in-law and I went together to buy a gift for my son’s birthday. We bought him a new pair of new running shoes. They were quite expensive, but he is very much in need of shoes that can take a beating. I joked with him yesterday that I bought him “a shoe” for his birthday. We had a good laugh, but come to think of it, that’s how I feel about all my efforts to bless people’s lives these days. I’m never capable of giving people exactly and completely what they need, just a little part, a little portion, a little token of my love. Even the pittance I give did not originate with me. It all comes out of the store I’ve received from the Lord. One of the most important things I can remember as I prayerfully go about today delivering less than a complete pair of shoes to those who are in need, is that the Lord will complete all my efforts. One way or another, the Lord always comes along with the other shoe.
