“Those who say you can’t take it with you never saw a car packed for a vacation trip.” -Anonymous
Over the summer many of us have packed a vehicle for a family vacation. Packing the car is an art form. When we finally finish packing, we step back and admire our masterpiece! Down the interstate, one after another after another, traveling masterpieces of packed vehicles ride alongside us. Parents have packed cars thinking of everything that the family may need while away from home.
This is precisely what God has done for us. Scripture says, “So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.” (Mt 7:11) We try and think of everything we will need while on vacation so our vehicles look like a traveling flea market! And yet, we inevitably forget something. When God packs there is not one thing forgotten. All we have to do is enjoy the ride! My daughter said as we pulled away, “Daddy, what if you forgot something?” I just smiled thinking about Matthew 6:8, “Your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!” Trust God today for all your needs and enjoy the ride!
