Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
— 1 Peter 4:10
A little boy was walking along a busy city street on a cold winter day. A woman out shopping saw the small boy and noticed that the coat he was wearing was only a very light jacket, and it was torn and ragged. Concerned, she walked over to the boy and asked if that was the only coat he had to wear on such a cold day. The boy replied that it was.
Feeling led to help the young boy, the lady took him into a nearby store and bought him a new coat. As they walked out of the store, the boy was very excited and happy to have received such a gift. He looked up at the woman and said, “Lady, I need to ask you a question. Are you God’s wife?”
The woman smiled and said, “No, but I am one of his children.”
The little boy replied, “Well, I knew you had to be some kin to Him.”
As children of the King, let us live today so others may see his love in us. Then we can have the privilege of sharing that love with others.
If you are not a member of God’s family, you can become one today. You will be blessed if you do, and then you can share God’s love with others.
