The Car

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 beautifully wrapped gift box. Curious, and somewhat
disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely,
leather-bound Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold.  Angry,
he rose his voice to his father and said: "with all your money you give
me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house.

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 more 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.
