A quote to consider

Dr. Adrian Rogers, the late pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, was an excellent preacher of the Gospel. Just as much, he was a man that could challenge a believer to take further steps than they had ever thought possible. One such quote is this one:

"Give God the chance to provide before you buy."

Now, this statement to me counters our consumer mentality as Americans. We are so impatient, but we need to learn to let God provide the things we need before we stress out about them. It's true that much of God's provision comes through His provision of a job, but does that change that the gift is His?

Let's thank God today for His provision and His grace.
