17th -- Finders Keepers...or Givers?


This is a short story but has a strong message that shows how much 
greater it is to bless someone else even if we have to give up 
something that we hold dear to our heart. 

Luke 6:38 Jesus says "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, 
pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your 
bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to

I hope the story blesses your life.


A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in 
a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the 
wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the 
precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without 

The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was 
worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he 
came back to return the stone to the wise woman. "I've been thinking," he 
said, "I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope 
that you can give me something even more precious:

Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone."

Let us be givers just as God is a giver. He loves us so much that He gave 
His only begotten Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. If God did that for us then 
the least we could do is love others and share His love by caring and 
doing for others as He has done for us.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Colossians 3:17, "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name
of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."

Colossians 3:23-24, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as 
working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an
inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are 

Everlasting in Christ,
