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)
