A Diamond Ring


A married lady was expecting a birthday gift from her husband. For many months she had admired a beautiful diamond ring in a showroom, and knowing her husband could afford it, she told him that was all she wanted. As her birthday approached, this lady awaited signs that her husband had purchased the diamond ring.

 

Finally, on the morning of her birthday, her husband called her into his study. Her husband told her how proud he was to have such a good wife, and told her how much he loved her. He handed her a beautiful wrapped gift box. Curious, the wife opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the wife’s name embossed in gold.Angrily, she raised her voice to her husband and said, ‘With all your money you give me a Bible?’ And stormed out of the house, leaving her husband.

Many years passed and the lady was very successful in business. She managed to settle for a more beautiful house and a wonderful family, but realized her ex-husband was very old, and thought perhaps she should go to visit him. She had not seen him for many years.But before she could make arrangements, she received a telegram telling her that her ex-husband had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to her. She needed to come back immediately and take care of things.

When she arrived at her ex-husband’s house, sudden sadness and regret filled her heart. She began to search through her ex-husband’s important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as she had left it years before.
With tears, she opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. Her ex-husband had carefully underlined a verse,
Matt 7:11, ‘And if you, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father, who is in heaven, give what is good to those who ask Him?

As she read those words, a tiny package dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a diamond ring, with her name engraved on it –the same diamond ring which she saw at the showroom. On the tag was the date of her birth,… …and the words. ‘LUV U ALWAYS’.

 

 

How many times do we miss God’s blessings, because they are not packaged as we expected?

IF YOUR GIFT IS NOT PACKAGED THE WAY YOU WANT IT,
IT’S BECAUSE IT IS BETTER PACKAGED THE WAY IT IS.
ALWAYS APPRECIATE LITTLE THINGS.
THEY USUALLY LEAD YOU TO BIGGER & BETTER THINGS

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.They must be felt with the heart

  1. Nice artikel. Memberi kita sebuah pelajaran kehidupan untuk bs menikmati dan menghargai semua pemberian dari teman2, keluarga dan Tuhan kita walaupun mungkin tidak sesuai yang kita harapkan.

    Disadari atau tidak, mungkin saja pemberian itu bisa membawa kita menuju hal2 yang tidak pernah kita bayangkan sebelumnya.

    GBU…

    • yup bener banged, waktu baca artikel ini jujur gw sendiri tersentuh banged..
      sumtimes kita sebagai manusia terlalu banyak menuntut sama Tuhan apalagi sama manusia.
      ketika kita mendapatkan sesuatu ato kita melihat apa yang kita miliki ga seperti yang orang lain miliki, mulut kita boleh saja bilang terimakasih tapi di dalam hati masih aja berkata ” kenapa kaya gini? kenapa ga kaya gitu? ”

      tapi lewat ilustrasi di atas belajar banged kalo Bapa kita itu tau banged apa yang terbaik buat hidup setiap kita, meskipun secara mata jasmani kita ga bisa melihatnya. percayakan aja deh hidup kita ke dalam rencana DIA dijamin 100% ga bakal nyesel 🙂
