A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months > >>he had
admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing > >>his father
could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted. As > >>Graduation Day
approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had > >>purchased the car. >
> > Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his > >>father called him into his
private study. His father told him how proud he > >>was to have such a fine son, and
told him how much he loved him. He handed > >>his son a beautiful wrapped > gift box.
> > Curious, but somewhat > >>Disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a
lovely, > >>leather-bound Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold. Angrily,
> >>he raised his voice to his father and said, "With all your money you give > >>me
a Bible? and stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible. > > Many > >>years passed
and the young man was very successful in business. He had a > >>beautiful home and
wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, > >>and thought perhaps he
should go to him. He had not seen him since that > >>graduation day. Before he could
make arrangements, he received a telegram > >>telling him his father had passed away,
and willed all of his possessions > >>to his son. He needed to come home immediately
and take care of things. > > >> > When he arrived at his father's house, sudden
sadness and regret > > >>filled his heart. He began to search through his father's
important papers > >>and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago.
With tears, > >>he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had
carefully > >>underlined a verse, > > Matt 7:11, "And if ye, being evil know how to
give > >>good gifts to your children, how much mor e shall your Heavenly > father >
>>which is in heaven, give to those who ask Him?" > > As he read those > >>words, a
car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the > >>dealer's name,
the same dealer who had the > sports car he had desired. On > >>the tag was the date
of his graduation, and the words...PAID IN FULL. > > > >> > How many times do we miss
God's blessings because they are not packaged > >>as we expected? I trust you enjoyed
this. Pass it on to others. Do not > >>spoil what you have by desiring what you have
not; but remember that what > >>you now have was once among the things you only hoped
for... > IF YOUR > >>GIFT IS NOT PACKED THE WAY YOU WANT IT, IT'S BECAUSE IT IS
BETTER PACKED > >>THAT WAY! ALWAYS > APPRECIATE LITTLE THINGS; THEY USUALLY LEAD YOU
TO > >>ATTACHMENTS! > > PLS SEND THIS TO ATLEAST TWO PEOPLE SO AS TO LET THIS >
