This is not your house, but Mine. I want You to live in it and welcome and bless in My Name whoever I bring to the door.
What did that have to do with this unbudgeted expense?
I want you to bless whoever I bring to you.
But how do I bless workmen when I’m told I shouldn’t be at home while they are working because of the jackhammering, removal of stairs, and the cold of doors and windows open to the winter weather? Lord, this is crazy?
I couldn’t think of how — other than leaving cookies and a large thermos of hot chocolate for the workmen as we trundled off to spend two days at a friend’s house.
When the job was done, I reluctantly wrote the large check, sighing over the lost money and my poor job of blessing. I gave the check to the foreman of the job and was struck dumb by his parting words. “Thank you. Having this job was a blessing. It’s hard for us to find work in the winter.”
My idea of waste was God’s idea for blessing.
