Come Again

Nº 300

April 30, 2024

[God] is like an eternal, unfailing fountain. The more it pours forth and overflows, the more it continues to give. God desires nothing more seriously from us than that we ask Him for much and great things. - Martin Luther

As the young leader of a growing ministry, it was my job to ask people for money. One day I sat across the desk from a wealthy businessman twice my age. I had been there before, and I knew him to be gracious and generous.

As our conversation began, I said, “You must get tired of so many people asking you for money!” He smiled and responded, “Dan, there are a lot worse things in life than having money to give away. How can I help?” I made my appeal, and he wrote a very generous check!

He had significant resources. He believed in our ministry and wanted it to prosper. And he never tired of me coming to request his help. Maybe there’s a lesson hidden in there!

Paul reminded the Church at Philippi, “My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

God has all the resources we can imagine – physical and spiritual. He knows what is best for us and can discern between our legitimate needs and our dubious desires. And our gracious and generous God never tires of us coming to Him to make honest requests for genuine needs.
