Curious, the wife opened the box and found a lovely; leather- bound Bible, with the wife's name embossed in gold. & angrily, she raised her voice to her husband and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible? And stormed out of the house, leaving her husband.
Many years passed and the married lady was very successful in business! She managed to settle for a more beautiful house and a wonderful family, but realized her ex-husband was very old, and thought perhaps she should go to visit him. She had not seen him for many years.
But before she could make arrangements, she received phone call telling her that her ex-husband had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to her. She needed to come back immediately and take care of things.
When she arrived at her ex-husband's house, sudden sadness and regret filled her heart. She began to search through her ex-husband's important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as she had left it years ago with tears; she opened the Bible and began to turn the pages.
Her ex-husband had carefully underlined a verse, Matthew 7:11, "And if you, being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father which is in heaven, give to those who ask Him? As she read those words, a tiny package dropped from the back of the Bible.
It had a diamond ring with her name engraved on it, the same diamond ring which she saw at the showroom. On the tag was the date of her birth, and the words...'LUV U ALWAYS'... How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?
Do not spoil what strengths you have by desiring what you do not have ; but remember that what strengths you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
IF YOUR GIFT OF STRENGTHS IS NOT PACKAGED THE WAY YOU WANT IT, IT'S BECAUSE IT IS BETTER PACKAGED THE WAY IT IS!
ALWAYS APPRECIATE LITTLE STRENGTHS WITHIN YOU; THEY USUALLY LEAD YOU TO BIGGER THINGS.
