Seek The Truth

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," and "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 14:2; 3:16-17)

It’s not a Coincidence

This entry is part 11 of 14 in the series God the Provider

It’s not a coincidence.

My TV broke down last week. It was an old-fashioned one so at first I thought it was my chance to get a new HDTV. But I just lost my full-time job. But – next week is Black Friday and the stores are advertising their special already. I found a 19″ HDTV in Target for $99. Ok, I can handle that. I shouldn’t, but I could.

I called my neighbor, Saxton, to take the broken TV to the dumpster for me and he said, I gave 2 TVs to a friend and he’s not using them. I’ll go get them and see if they still work.

Sure, I said, can’t be free!

He shows up yesterday with the TVs – both the old kind. The first one, a black 19″, didn’t have a remote and we couldn’t change the channel to connect to DishNetwork. He brings the 2nd one in and it’s the exact same model as the one that broke. A Magnavox 19″. Works perfectly. Didn’t even have to reprogram the remote!

I bought my Maganvox in Costco back in North Miami around 1998. I brought it in the back seat of my car  cross country. What were the chances that my friend had the exact same TV in Phoenix?

I could still go and spend $100 for a new HDTV, but I don’t NEED it now. I’ll use that $100 to pay my electric bill.

So, I’m on Facebook last night and as see a post from a friend, “Does anyone out there have a digital converter box they’re not using?”

I happen to have 2 of them. 2 years ago when every one went digital, I got them for my old TVs and got all the local stations with some rabbit ear antennas. When I moved a year later to where I am now, in a lovely area surrounded my hills and mountains, the rabbit ears only caught a couple of stations because of the mountains. I had to get DishNetwork. I put the digital converter boxes in a box in a closet along with a bunch of other equipment that I’m no longer using, but you never know who may need it.

I was able to pass on the gift.

Don’t repay kindness, pass it on.

And don’t tell me it was a coincidence! It was a God Thing!
