Skippy’s Treasure

“May I have this? I love it!”

"What do you mean it's going to the cleaners?"

"But I love it, it's perfect!""What about Ruby? It's not her color!""I promise not to get it dirty or claw on it - if you let me keep it.""Okay, you can get it cleaned. May I have it when it you bring it back?"

"Please? I love you!"

"If I can't have that nice quilted bedspread, I guess I will have to knit one!""Mom! How does this knitting thing work?"


Sometimes we are like Skippy. We ask the Lord for something that we want, not listening to His still, quiet voice telling us to wait – that He has something better.
“Lay not for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for your treasures in heaven, where neither moth not rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV)
