Following our Ought to's.
He wasn't a great man in any way. Simple, retired just a normal Joe to most. But for those whose life he touched, he was so much more. It seems God used him in such remarkable ways.
One story I remember was that he was driving down the street and felt he should visit a man he knew. He detoured and went by the man's home.
When he rang the door, the man opened the door, tears in his eyes, gun in his hand. He had prayed,"God If you really care, send someone to tell me, or I end it now."
Does that not send chills down your spine?
When asked about following God's will his answer was so simple.
"I follow my ought to's."
We were eating out after church. We saw several other couples in the same restaurant enjoying their family and friends.
One family we knew walked in, I turned to my husband and asked, do you think we should pay for their lunch? He had felt the same, so we contacted our waiter and asked for their check to be brought to us.
I didn't know the husband was out of work.
The next week we found out that it was their Anniversary dinner and they never did find out who had paid their meal..It had been such a blessing the husband said.
Sometimes following our ought to's is as simple as paying someone's meal.
At other times it might be saving someone's life.
You never know.
You just need to
FOLLOW YOUR OUGHT TO'S
