Nobody can outdo God, the Father, in generosity. Earlier in my life I made what was a mere gesture of generosity toward His Son. It came to nothing, given my efficiency.
He returned that gesture by giving me a son whose generosity is proverbial. I have friends, good people all, whose sons won’t speak to them. Not only does my son give me a Father’s Day card that thanks me for the way I raised him, but he puts more than several hundred dollars in it to help me meet expenses. If you ask me, he’s a brother of the Divine Son.
But watch out. The way God does things you may not even notice. I could have thought my son inherited all this; sure, sure, taking all the credit. Or God may be returning a favor you did sixty years ago, as in my case. How could I make the connection?
