It’s that time of year, where most people go out and brave the elements, only to wait countless minutes and hours in long lines to get just the right gift.
And, for a lot of people, they take advantage of incredible sales and non-holidays like black Friday and cyber Monday.
While that’s okay and all, I want to talk about something along the lines of gift-giving.
I was driving down the road, listening to the K-Love, and the guy on the radio was talking about a conversation he had with one of the guys from Big Daddy Weave, lead singer Mike Weaver.
Weaver was telling him about a recent time where he was out giving service by handing out little care packages or something for a men’s retreat; I think. At the time, they had just run out of shaving razors.
So, Mike ran around the corner to a nearby drug store to pick up some cheap razors. And, while he was standing there in the aisle reaching for a few packages of the cheapest razors on the shelf, it hit him.
He said that as he reached out, he remembered a scripture he had read many times over:
“Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” – Matthew 25:40
When Weaver realized what was happening, he had a change of heart and instead, reached for a higher quality pack of razors. And did so knowing that he would want to give the best of the best to God, so why not give the same to one of His children.
That’s the principle behind this scripture!
What we do and give to others, it’s as if we are doing it to the Lord.
Are we going to give Him the cheapest thing on the shelf? Or, would we give Him the best?
Are we giving our best, or are we settling for less than the best?
So, it’s okay to seek out a good deal, but… if you can’t give the best… maybe you need to put it back and have a change of heart.
