Sole Searching – Giving my best
Which pair of shoes should I choose? The pink ones with sparkles? Or the ones with the pick laces? Or should I get both of them? I have decided that I am purchasing shoes for a little girl. In my mind I can picture her and imagine some life scenarios that may have brought her Mother in to the Outreach Centre. This makes me weigh my choices seriously and linger just a bit longer in the store. I imagine how her eyes will light up when sees the shoes. I can feel her excitement “Oh I want these ones! I love pink!”
I want the shoes I choose for her to say “You are worthy of my best.” I want the note that I write to be the whisper in her ear that says “You are special”. And more than all of that I pray that she will come to know that God sees her as a treasure so valuable he gave his very best for her.
I am learning that sacrificial and generous giving without condition can and should be how I live – because the love of Christ has changed me. That through giving I continue to be transformed. That generosity is the byproduct of God’s grace in my life.
Because I have been the recipient of God’s very best when I was so unworthy.
