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.
