Be Extravagant in your Gifts…

Yesterday, a friend gave me $20 more than was deserved.

This morning it is about 27 degrees F. There is a man and his wife standing on the street corner selling papers. I looked for change to give them as a blessing. God said give the $20. I thought I would really like to keep it. I whistled at the guy. I didn’t buy a paper. I gave him my $20.

Be extravagant in your gifts. Jesus is extravagant with you.

Archie Rhines Hey John… I had the twenty folded up tight, so he had to work at seeing the denomination. The light stayed red. He got it unfolded and with his toothless grin said a sincere, “Thank you!” I said to bless his wife with it… He smiled even bigger. He said he would and pointed at her on the opposite corner.

I think God was pleased. My dad was a great teacher and and my mother a wonderful encourager. Giving has become easy…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
