Who is the Provider in your Family?
Matthew 6:30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
One night my wife asked me, “Honey, how come you don’t bring me to Greenbelt for our dinner dates?” (Greenbelt is known for its expensive restaurants and a place to window shop.) I answered, “Hon… I could bring you at Greenhills! ( Greenhills is known for its cheap food and shopping). Our monthly budget dictates that going to Greenbelt for dinner would cost us 2 dinner dates for the month. So I told my wife, “Next time”. But God has other plans. Later that week my friend invited us to dinner at Greenbelt. We had a very expensive meal and another lesson from GOD. My faith was limited to my budget. My wife’s faith was limitless because she knew that our Heavenly Father was her source of provision and not our budget.
We must never limit God. We can never put him in a box. He is bigger than our budget. He is definitely bigger than Greenbelt!
