This is a short story but has a strong message that shows how much
greater it is to bless someone else even if we have to give up
something that we hold dear to our heart.
Luke 6:38 Jesus says "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure,
pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your
bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to

FINDERS KEEPERS...OR GIVERS?
A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in
a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the
wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the
precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without
The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was
worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he
came back to return the stone to the wise woman. "I've been thinking," he
said, "I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope
that you can give me something even more precious:
Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone."
Let us be givers just as God is a giver. He loves us so much that He gave
His only begotten Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. If God did that for us then
the least we could do is love others and share His love by caring and
doing for others as He has done for us.
