Once a baby girl went to a shop with her mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed her a bottle with sweets and said, “Dear Child, you can take the sweets”. But the child didn’t take. The shopkeeper was surprised; such a small child she is and why is she not taking the sweets from the bottle.
Again he said take the sweets. Now the mother also heard that and said, “Take the sweets dear”. Yet she didn’t take it. The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets, he himself took the sweets and gave to the child. The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets.
While returning home the mother asked the child — Why didn’t you take the sweets, when the shop keeper told you to take? Can you guess the response: . . . Child replies Mom! My hands are very small and if I take the sweets I can only take few, but now you see when uncle gave with his big hands, how many more sweets I got!
When we take we may get little but when Our Father in Heaven gives, He gives us more beyond our expectations more than what we can think of because His blessings are more better than we can even imagine. Always ask God what you want and wait for the Lord to give you more!!
Ask what you want;
But be willing to take what is given to you;
This may be better than what you asked for.
