WISDOM TAUGHT ME:
BE SPIRITUALLY SMART
“Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” John 4:10 NKJV
It is good for people to recognize the gifts that GOD has given to them by sending His Servants among them. If they look beggarly, do not mistake their condition for outright helplessness. They might be carrying what you have being looking for!
Jesus asked the woman for some water, but He carried a spring of living water.
If that widow had insulted Elijah because he asked her to prepare his piece of cake first, she and her precious son would have eaten their last meal, and died! And GOD probably would have continued to send birds to feed Elijah. But, the widow was spiritually smart, she complied, so she outlived the famine! She and her son plugged into the ministry of Elijah, and they enjoyed unending supplies in the midst of famine! (1Kings 17:8-16)
Do not despise GOD’s Servants when they stretch out a hand asking you for any kind of assistance. They might be holding your miracle in the other hand. Be spiritually smart!
