It had been a hard winter in the Appalachian area. The snow had piled up deeper and deeper, the mercury dropped, rivers froze, people suffered.
The Red Cross used helicopters to fly in supplies. One crew had been working day after day–long hours. They were on their way home late in the afternoon when they saw a little cabin submerged in the snow. There was a thin whisper of smoke coming from the chimney.
The rescue team figured they were probably about out of food, fuel, perhaps medicine. Because of the trees they had to put the helicopter down a mile away. They put on heavy packs with emergency supplies, trudged through heavy snow, waist deep, reached the cabin exhausted, panting, perspiring.
They pounded on the door. A thin, gaunt mountain woman opened the door and the lead man gasped, “We’re from the Red Cross.”
She was silent for a moment and then she said, “It’s been a hard winter, Sonny, I just don’t think we can give anything this year.”
You might think this message is about a plea for money, but it’s not. It’s not about investing in stocks or bonds or IRA’s. It’s about investing in God and what God wants to do in the world through YOU!
How is God investing in YOU? What does God want to do in 2024 through YOU?
