The Greatest Blessing | A Very Literal Lesson | A Talking Donkey
LOOK FOR A REALLY FUN SUMMER ANNOUNCEMENT IN THIS VIDEO. Do you ever wonder if God knows who you are? The book of numbers begins with a huge list of numbers, but why so many? Was the Lord trying to help us understand the worth of a soul? Was the hope that not one would be lost? In a world filled with resentment, doubt and even loathing, how do you find Jesus in the midst?
“A parable illustrates this understanding. A wealthy father knew that if he were to bestow his wealth upon a child who had not yet developed the needed wisdom and stature, the inheritance would probably be wasted. The father said to his child:
“All that I have I desire to give you—not only my wealth, but also my position and standing among men. That which I have I can easily give you, but that which I am you must obtain for yourself. You will qualify for your inheritance by learning what I have learned and by living as I have lived. I will give you the laws and principles by which I have acquired my wisdom and stature. Follow my example, mastering as I have mastered, and you will become as I am, and all that I have will be yours.”
