Three Daughters
©
by

Stephen A. Peterson


Sylvia had three intelligent, beautiful daughters ages 24, 22 and 19 years. After each daughter had completed their formal educations, they left home to obtain employment in medicine, education and the culinary arts. Each daughter prospered beyond Sylvia’s expectation or theirs. Christmas was just around the corner so the young women came together to decide what each would buy their mother for Christmas.

Madonna, the eldest said, “I’m going to get mom a beautiful new house!” Julia, the second eldest said, “I’m going to get mom that beautiful Lincoln Continental automobile she’s been looking at in the magazines.” Kelly, the youngest smiled and said, “I’m going to give mom the best meal she’s ever had!”

Soon after the first of the new year, Sylvia sent out her thank you cards to her three daughters. “Madonna”, she wrote, “The house you built is very, very beautiful! It has a large garden with many pecan trees too! But this house is so big that I’ve had to hire a cleaning company once a week to help me keep it clean. But thank you from the bottom of my heart, my lovely Madonna!” “Julia”, she wrote, “My what a grand, expensive car! A car this big is so hard for me to handle and I really do not travel all that much! But I thank you dear!” “Kelly” she wrote her youngest daughter, “You have the good knowledge of your mother to know what it is that I really and truly enjoy! The beef brisket dinner, pecan pie, vanilla bean ice cream was absolutely delicious! Oooo! I’m so full enjoying that wonderful dinner! Thank you so very, very much dear!”

God, Our Father, needs nothing from His children as did Sylvia from her three daughters. But in God’s case we are told in the Bible that God wants a relationship with us as well as expressions our love, by faith, for Him. The cost to have this relationship is free—a free gift! All that is necessary is to accept Jesus Christ and acknowledge that we are sinners and need a Savior! Pretty simple, huh! So simple that many will not do this! WOW!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
