I look at my life, the relationships, the opportunities, the adventure—just the plan that God has, by his grace, put me on. You can’t even put a price tag on that. And the people that I know who follow Christ and who understand it’s not theirs, it’s God’s, can say the same exact thing. So every time I resolve in my heart to walk across the room to bless, I’m going to be blessed. Off the chain living is all about off the chain giving.
I think it was three weeks ago I bought this watch. And this watch costs $150. I had worn it twice. God, again, is using these things in my life to tell me something, and I think I know, and I’m kind of telling you why.
So, I had this watch on. And it was late one Wednesday night after our student services, and a guy walks up to me that I know who goes to college, and he helps with our student ministry. He said, “I love your watch.” I said, “Thanks.” And then he says, “Man, I lost my watch.”
And I heard that voice again, “Give him the watch.” I didn’t argue with that voice anymore, I just took the watch off and I said, “Man, take this watch.” He said, “I didn’t say that for that.” I said, “Man, take the watch. It is yours.” He said thanks, “This watch awesome. Yeah, I love it.” This guy just loved the watch. I saw a need—boom—gave it, blessed him with the watch. I mean the watch, $150. Yeah, that’s okay, that’s cool.
Several weeks later, in fact it was three days ago, I was in California speaking. A guy walked up to me and gave me a watch. It’s the size of a sun dial. Look at this thing. And my friend inadvertently left the price tag on it. This watch cost 15 times more than the watch I gave to that college kid.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved.
