12/14/19 Weekend Grif.Net – Sports Car

When James was =
a college student, he had admired a lovely sports car in one =
dealer‘s showroom for a long time. He knew that his parents could =
afford it and told them that THIS car is all that he wanted as a gift in =
a day of his graduation.

 

Graduation day =
came and father had called James into his private office. He told him: =
“I am very proud to have such a good son like you.” He told =
him how much he loved him and handed him a lovely wrapped gift. James =
felt disappointment, but he was curious to know what it was, so he =
opened the box and saw a leather-bound Bible. “You have so much =
money and all you can give me is a Bible?” James shouted at his =
father with anger and left the house.

 

Time passed =
and James became a successful businessman. He was happily married and =
had two children. Their family lived in a beautiful house. However, his =
soul still hurt due to broken relationships with his father. James had =
not seen him since his graduation day.

 

One day he =
received an attorney’s letter informing him that his father passed =
away. According to the will, he had inherited all of the possessions of =
his father. When James arrived at his father‘s house and began to =
look for some important paper, and accidentally he found the Bible, =
still gift-wrapped, and sadness had filled his heart. =

 

With tears in =
his eyes, he opened the Bible and read a verse that was underlined by =
his father: “And if ye, being evil, know how to give good gifts to =
your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father give to those =
who ask Him?”

 

Suddenly a car =
key dropped from the back of the Bible. He knew that it was key to the =
same car that he desired at that time. James also found a tag with the =
date of his graduation on it and the words “Paid in =
full“.
