A True story from my Book, Rescue the Stories book three. Give It To Em !!
How pretty they were !! Shiny, fancy, expensive hubcaps,
that came with our new car.
Last minute, we decided to drive from California to Camp Meeting and arrived a day
early.We elected to attend church that
morning at Sheridan Assembly in Tulsa,
The service was meaningful, and we were in excellent spirits
as we exited the church that afternoon.
Wait - - something was wrong!Our beautiful hubcaps were gone!Someone had stolen our hubcaps while we were
Deflated in heart, we were also quite a bit angry to think
about someone being so low down as to steal our hubcaps on a Sunday and to
boot, openly in the church parking lot !!
Too sick at heart to even eat lunch, my husband decided to
call one of our friends and unload our woes on him for comfort.
“Hi Bob, how are ya all doing?” was the cheerful greeting on
the other end of the line.
My husband blurted out, “Simon, you won’t believe this, but
today in the church parking lot, they stole my fancy new hubcaps.”
The quick reply was, “Bob, don’t let em steal your
My husband resounded, “You don’t understand, they already
stole my hubcaps.”
The gentle answer came again, “Bob, don’t let em steal your
hubcaps, GIVE them to em.”
My husband couldn’t believe his ears.“What did you say?”
Sweetly here it came again, “If you give them to em, they
can’t steal your hubcaps.”
We can’t actually say that we enjoyed those words of wisdom,
but as we considered it thoughtfully, we could understand that if we gave the
thieves the hubcaps, it would heal the hardness of our heart - - and all the
un-forgiveness, that we were already feeling.
Letting go is often difficult to do.Especially if it was something you dearly
enjoyed or loved.
Many times, we would rather wallow in our misery and harbor
our resentment and hug our offense.The
longer we sit in the seat of the scornful, the suffering is only prolonged.
If we would quickly “Give it to em,” it would speedily heal
our wounded spirit and we could continue walking with Jesus at our normal
pace.So I say to you, next time
something like this happens to YOU simply, “Give it to em.”
