My dad would work from sunrise to past sunset, to provide for us. If he had anything extra he would share it with anyone in need; food, clothes, gloves, wood for the stoves and or a ride to town. Once, I wanted another pair of shoes and knowing he had extra work, I asked him to buy me the shoes. He said, "no because you have shoes and the neighbors don't have any". Whatever happened to Colossians 3:12?, "Put on therefore, holy and beloved bowels of mercies, kindness, meekness and long-suffering". Then he said, "if I don't buy you the 'extra shoes', DO YOU THINK GOD IS MAD AT ME?" He was right, I did not have Spiritual awareness of HOLY THINGS to appreciate the SPIRITUAL THINGS OF CHRIST! I have learned to be careful of where I "cast my pearls".
