Is This God's Providence, Or What?
It was Sunday last. My grandson and I, after the Sunday morning service, went to our local Skyline Chili restaurant to eat some good chili. As we were sitting close to the front door eating, several people came by and spoke to me, and I greeted and talked with several of them at length. A family from our church happened to also be at the restaurant; and, when one of the children saw all the people come to me and greeting me, she said, "Does everyone know Bro. Wolfe?" Well, it certainly does seems to be the case sometimes. One man who greeted me and talked with me a little took it upon himself to pay for our meal, for which I am very grateful. May God bless him for that. That happens occasionally, and I know that was God's providence. But after my grandson and I ate our chili, I asked the waitress to bring each one of us a cup of chocolate ice cream. In a couple of moments, she returned with the ice cream. I asked her to also bring the bill, but she said, "Someone already paid for your food, so you don't owe anything." I reached for my cup of ice cream and said, "You mean, even these?" She looked at me hurriedly and said, "Oh, don't worry about that." So the man paid for our meal, and the waitress gave us the chocolate ice cream for free. I hope she did not get fired (I am sure she did not). Now, isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful? That is God's Providence working among us.
