A story is told of an old couple who were living in poverty and on the edge of despair. When one day, a man came and noticed a picture on the wall of their living room. It was a French note for a thousand francs. The man asked the couple how they came about the picture and they told him a French soldier has been taken in by them and they nourished him until he died. He gave them this picture as appreciation. They loved it so much they framed it. They were greatly surprised when told the picture could be worth a large sum of money, if they would only turn it in. They had present spending money on the wall. Don’t frame the Lord’s promises, use them and make them prosperous for you today. Don’t sit around waiting for things to happen to you; make them happen for you.
