Monthly Prayer Devotional

October 2014


by Judith Alexander, Interim National Director

I was recently in Iowa visiting my son David and his wife Robin. We needed some supplies at the store so I volunteered to go. As usual for me I went for a few things and then got interested in the different products that I hadn’t seen in Canada so I merrily went on my way putting them in my basket. As I approached the cashiers’ counter I pulled out my wallet before I put groceries on the counter (something I always do). Low and behold I realized I only had my American wallet that held money and passport but not my Canadian wallet that had my credit cards. I checked and all I had was $70.00 American that I knew would not be enough. So I started to back out of the lane but a man came in behind me. I said, “You go ahead. I have to put some of these items back as I left my credit cards at home and I don’t have enough cash.” He said, “No, just go ahead.” He pulled out $20.00 from his wallet and put it on the counter for me. Of course my reaction was, “No, I can’t have you do that!” But he insisted. So I said that I would pay this forward to someone else. His generosity was over and above.

As I got close to my car I remembered that I had put my Canadian wallet in the glove compartment the night before as I watched my son in a bicycle race. So when the gentleman came out of the store I said, “You will have a good story to tell your friends about a crazy lady you met in the store that you gave $20.00 to and she returned it with some “funny” money: a Canadian $20.00 bill.” He laughed and said, “My best friend just moved to Toronto, Canada and asked me to come up for the weekend, now I have money to spend!” We talked some more and then went on our way.

When we were sitting later with my son and his wife, I said, “I have a tale to tell about an Iowan man that I met.” My son and his wife in unison said, “This can’t be good!” As I told my story their eyes grew bigger and bigger and they looked dumbfounded. They found it hard to believe. My husband then said, “These crazy experiences are always happening to Mom.”

It is at this time of the year we take time out to give thanks to a God who is so generous and kind: giving over and above what we need; giving to those who don’t deserve. It reminds me of the workers who were hired late in the day and the owner gave the same amount to those who worked all day (Mathew 20:1-16). God is mysterious in how He deals with man, but in all He does it is for our good whether we deserve it or not. I thank Him for witnessing to my family and others through this story of generosity.

May you see that God is opening your hearts to His character of goodness and generosity. May we be truly thankful as we remember all He has done for us. We serve a Lord and Saviour who gives abundantly.
