Touching life story…..

A young man was getting ready to graduate 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 beautiful   wrapped gift box. 

Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man 
opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible. Angrily, 
he raised his voice at his father and said, “With all your money you 
give  me  a Bible?” and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy 
book. 

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 things. 
When he arrived at  his father’s house, sudden sadness and 
regret filled his heart. 

He began to search 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. As he 
read those   words, a car key dropped from an envelope 
taped behind 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?

Be sure to take a minute each day to make sure you are not over looking what God may have waiting for you.
