“It’s All For Jesus”
During a missionary service in a church, the adults were asked to contribute money to help feed some starving children in India who had been placed in a Christian hospital. The boys and girls in the congregation were urged to give a favorite toy. When the time came for the offering, one little girl began crying as though her heart would break. In her arms she clasped a well-worn doll, her only doll. Everyone could see that she was having quite a struggle in parting with her cherished possession. Then all at once a smile broke through her tears as she almost ran down the aisle to the front. Holding up the doll, she said, "I'm sorry I cried, Mr. Missionary. I forgot for a while--it's all for Jesus!"
This wonderful story reminds us that every trial, every battle, every sorrow, every sacrifice is to be faced with the realization that “It’s ALL for Jesus!”.
I therefore so run, not as uncertainty; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
but I keep under my body; and bring it unto subjection: lest that by any means,
when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. 1 Cor 9:26-27
