Father This Day
Frank was preaching while holding a boll of cotton, stick and all. He was talking about putting faith into action, “produce to product”. While he was holding the cotton in his hands, I realized this needed to be the next picture in the Praying Hands series. As I was telling our daughter, Kristine, about it, she suggested I ask Charlie to pose for the photo shoot. Charlie is an 80+ year-old cotton farmer who attends our church. Seemed appropriate. So, I asked Charlie, and he said I wouldn’t want “these ole` hands in one o` them pictures of yours, Rusty!” But yes, Charlie, I would, and thank you.
Before you pray Our Lord’s Prayer the next time I suggest you read a short story in 2 Kings chapter 4 verses 1 – 7. A very poor woman was in dire economic straights. She needed daily bread. Take a moment and read how God provided for her needs.
Now when you pray Our Lord’s Prayer, I hope you will remember to put your faith into action. When you ask your Father, who is in heaven, to provide for you on a daily basis, know that He will provide. That provision may come in the form of a loaf of bread, a jar of oil or a boll of cotton! Just ask Charlie.
