God knows what’s best for you — much, much more than a lace dress - Daily Bible Reflections June 18,2015


BARGAIN LACE DRESS,
ANYONE?
 
“Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” – Matthew 6:8
 
        Ed drove for me to the Manila City Hall. Then he was also to bring me to my school for an alumni meeting. I finished my business at the city hall some 30 minutes earlier, so I requested Ed to stop at a mall because I needed to buy a dress with black lace accent.
        “Nope,” he said firmly, “you’ll be late for your next appointment.”
     Yup, my husband knew only too well it doesn’t take me only 30 minutes to buy a dress. I moped in the car, feeling dejected.
     At our alumni meeting, a member brought with her dozens of garments, most of them with black lace accents! And at bargain prices! With my budget for one garment, I was able to buy a dress, two blouses, and a long skirt, plus a couple more to give as Christmas gifts.
         A week after, Mandy, my sister-in-law, unaware that I needed a lace dress, gave me nine yards of black lace textile. The incident impressed upon me that, over and above my husband who knows me, I have the Father who knows my needs even before I ask for them—as promised in today’s Gospel. Cynthia U.

Reflection: God knows what’s best for you — much, much more than a lace dress.
 
Lord, may I never forget that You have the very best for me — perfect and overflowing!
 
Venerable Matt Talbot, pray for us.
