The Rejected Gift.

A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted. As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car.

Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.

Curious, but somewhat Disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold. Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible? and stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible.

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things.

When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father's important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had carefully underlined a verse,

Matt 7:11, "And if ye, being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much mor e shall your Heavenly father which is in heaven, give to those who ask Him?"

As he read those words, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words...PAID IN FULL.

How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?

Pray this will speak to your heart.

American guys would not visit other nations for love/sex
to get a variety of causes. The initial is that if most girls within
the U.S. were not so body fat. Confident there are guys that can't find the money for to journey or are uninelligent, so they settle to get a excess fat woman and live a boring life even if they say their wife or girlfriend is "hot" but the size of the Ford Tundra. The 2nd is only a minority of ladies are super sizzling inside the U.S. A low proportion of sizzling women in the united states, tends to make them opt for both some muscle mass buff homos or some billionare. Amongst the youthful hot ladies, they may be sexually turned off by intelligence of any kind or sophistication.
So what should a man of respectable appears having a high education do ? Go accept some fatty ? Why need to he, when he features a higher possibility in having the lifestyle he desires in other areas on this earth, Look in the the years he missed out in college where hot females haven't any sexual interest in intelligence and use MTV as
their common of a man. Logically speaking, it's far better for an informed guy of decent appears to visit locations exactly where nearly all ladies are
super hot and exotic like Japanese Europe/Russia,components of Latin The us, and a few components of Asia.
So why do ladies in america, and their closeted homosexual male supporters lash out at their fellow American men for enjoying daily life or looking for out a actual life ? I've no issue if girls chose a life they need,
why cannot males ?
