There is no way we can ever comprehend the fullness of GOD’S love. However, by His grace, sometimes we are the recipient to glimpses of our Savior’s goodness.

As I worked in my office the other day one of our veterans knocked on the door and asked to speak with me for a moment. His name is Charles and normally he does not have much to say. I was surprised because he rarely engages in a conversation, without being prompted. I invited Charles in and offered him a seat. He refused, citing a bad knee that prevented him from sitting too long. Charles wanted me to know that if he did not receive any further services from the Open Door Mission, the free dental care he was given the day before was more than enough. Charles praised the LORD and shared that in the past, he would not talk much because he was embarrassed by his bad teeth. With a twinkle in his eye, and a brand new toothy smile, Charles again praised the LORD and turned away.

What a great GOD we serve.
