Only The Best

You can, be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus. Philippians 4:19, Message.

Would you spend $100 for a glass of water? Some of the pioneers heading for California in 1850 did. In the middle of the Mojave Desert, thirsty people would do anything for a cup of lukewarm water.

Along the trail other necessities were often outrageously priced as well. At the beginning of their journey, a traveler could buy flour for $4 a barrel, but if they ran out while cross­ing the desert, the price rose to $1 a pint. A pint would make a batch of bread or two batches of pancakes-maybe.

The basic laws of supply and demand run on greed still today. I remember being caught in a surprise downpour in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Umbrellas marked $5 were sud­denly being sold for $25. The same thing happens with the price of gasoline during vacation time or heating oil during a cold spell. Increasing the need increases the greed.

This is the exact opposite of God’s law of love. When He promises to supply all our needs, He doesn’t use a teaspoon for a measure, but a dump truck full and running over. I imag­ine He chuckles a little at the surprise and pleasure on our faces when we thank Him.

About "Popsicles, Black Holes and Burnt Toast"

So far today I've done all right. I haven't gossiped, havent lost my temper, havent been greedy, grumpy, or nasty. But in a few minutes, God, Im going to get out of bed, and from then on Im going to need more help. If your morning is anything like that, then start it out right with a revelation from Rizzo. She always has something new to say about God. It wont take long, but the smile in your heart will last the day. You'll encounter eggs that explode and missiles that dont. You'll meet Cha-Cha, the parrot that learned how to order the dog to bring in the cows, then take them back to pasture againover and over. And that's just the first two weeks! The rest of the book really is out of this world, with tales of triumph and tragedy, and stories terrestrial and extraterrestrial.
