Be Sappy, Not Spendy

“Pam, I brought you a doughnut.”

David set the coffee, (made my way), on the bookshelf next to the bed. He picked up the remote and turned it to the new Hallmark Drama Channel.

“It’s not my birthday,” I thought groggily, “Or our anniversary. Why is he giving me breakfast in bed – on a Wednesday? Wait, it’s Valentine’s Day!”

He has learned I don’t want expensive gifts but I melt at sappy things. God works the same way.

We ask for a million dollars and He doesn’t answer that prayer. He gives us a home and peace. You can’t buy that at any price.

2 Samuel 7:21, “You’ve done all this not because of who I am but because of who You are – out of Your very heart – but You’ve let me in on it.” The Message
