  • The Father’s Beggar
    Wednesday, April 11, 2018

    A homeless man got off the train at the Pennsylvania depot. For years, he lived as a beggar on the streets. He touched a man on the shoulder and said, “Mister, can you please spare a dime?” The man turned around and the beggar recognized him as his father. ”Father,” he said, “don’t you know me?” The father threw his arms around him and cried out, “I found you! All I have is yours!” The former beggar later gave his testimony at an evangelistic meeting and said, “Think of it. I, as a tramp, stood begging my father for 10 cents when for 18 years he’d been looking for me to give me all he had.” Most people spend their lives begging for scraps of love, approval, success, attention, recognition, joy, and purpose. And all the time your heavenly Father is waiting to give you not scraps, but more love, acceptance, and joy than you could ever dream of. God didn’t create you to beg. God made you to be His child. Your Father is God. Turn to Him, and He’ll give you abundant life.
    From Message #1414 - Orphans of the Father

    Scripture: Matthew 6:26

    TODAY'S MISSION - Today, don’t beg, live desperately, or be a victim. Look to your Father in heaven to provide for your needs for abundant life.
