After going to many stores
I finally found the long sleeve t-shirt I’d been looking for
I don’t like having a lot of stuff around the house
So, my plan was once I found the long sleeve shirt
I’d give the similar short sleeve one away

But then I started thinking
I can take the old shirt and use it for a car wash cloth
Or some other cleaning purpose
But then I heard the voice of God say
“You still gonna give it away, aren’t you?”
My response:
But God, it’s nothing but a $7 t-shirt
His response:
That shirt could be exactly what someone else is looking for
You don’t know how it will bless someone else
And you said when you found the shirt you really wanted
You’d give the old one away

After this, two things came to mind
1) Obedience is better than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22)
It is better to obey the voice of the Lord whether it makes sense or not
God can see into the future unlike us
And, He keeps His word with us, so we should keep our word with others

2) The adage that says:
One person’s garbage is another person’s treasure
Because something is no longer useful to you
Doesn’t mean it won’t be useful to someone else
That’s why people have yard sales
Something old and cheap
Could be what someone else needs
Even if it’s just a $7 t-shirt.
