You Can’t Out-Give God

You-Cant-Outgive-God-Revised-2While searching for today’s quote, I came across one of Joel’s funny stories that had me giggling, that I’d like to share with you here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. By the way, the sermon was titled “You are someone’s miracle.”

Here’s Joel’s story:

One time I was leaving Minute Maid Park. The ball game had just let out and I was pullin’ out of the parking lot… people were streaming out of the building and it started to rain.

I felt bad for the people getting wet. Most of them had a long way to go to their car. There were hundreds of them. I couldn’t do something for everyone, but I did have ONE umbrella in my back seat.

So I pulled over and rolled down the window and these two ladies were passing by. They had their programs over their heads to keep them from getting wet. I didn’t know them, they didn’t know me. But I said “Hey, here’s an umbrella that you can have.”  

When I gave them that umbrella, you’d a thought I’d given them a thousand dollars. They got so excited, she punched her friend and said I can’t believe it. She just said “God, I wish I had an umbrella” (the crowd broke out in laughter here).

I said, “Well God must of heard your prayer, because here’s an umbrella being delivered by an angel” (Joel smiles here amused).

What I’m sayin’ is, YOU can become someone’s miracle.

End of story
