A fashionable lady entered a footwear store in search of a pair of new sandals for her use. She tried every sample available in the store but none of them seemed to suit her feet. Disappointed, she was about to leave the store when she noticed a pair lying near the entrance. She put them on and was delighted to find that the pair suited her perfectly. She enquired about its price. The manager told her, “It is free. You can use them”.
The lady was surprised and asked, “Why?”
The manager said, “That was the pair you had on your feet when you came in. You removed them to try the new sandals.”
We may be in a similar situation when we worry about our present predicament on seeing better options elsewhere. We may feel that we should have received a more rewarding job, a more comfortable house, a more beautiful spouse etc. Let us realize that God has given each of us the best gifts that suit us most. Let us thank God for the blessings received.
