She asked him, “How much are you selling the eggs for?”

The old seller replied, “$.25 an egg, Madam.”

She said to him, “I will take 6 eggs for $1.25 or I will leave.”

The old seller replied, “Come take them at the price you want. Maybe, this is a good beginning because I have not been able to sell even a single egg today.”

She took the eggs and walked away feeling she has won.

She got into her fancy car and went to a posh restaurant with her friend.

There, she and her friend, ordered whatever they liked. They ate a little and left a lot of what they ordered.

Then she went to pay the bill. The bill cost her $45.00. She gave $50.00 and asked the owner of the restaurant to keep the change.

This incident might have seemed quite normal to the owner but, very painful to the poor egg seller.

The point is, Why do we always show we have the power when we buy from the needy ones?

And why do we get generous to those who do not even need our generosity?

I once read somewhere: “My father used to buy simple goods from poor people at high prices, even though he did not need them.

Sometimes he even used to pay extra for them.

I got concerned by this act and asked him why does he do so?

Then my father replied, “It is a charity wrapped with dignity, my child.”

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to help the needy when the arises henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
