I pulled into the drive thru to get a hamburger today, when a thought popped into my head to pay for the person’s meal behind me. I contemplated it and then decided that maybe now wasn’t the best time for me to do that, financially.
And then it hit me as I handed over my cash for my meal. What if that prompt was from God and I made the decision to ignore it? Yeah, I handed over the whopping $4 to pay for that meal, for whomever was behind me.
The reaction from the girl at the counter was worth it, alone. She didn’t know what to do at first. Clearly, this isn’t something that’s done often. After I paid for their meal, the person pulled up behind me and I saw them counting change to pay for their meal.
Light. Bulb. ON.
Maybe they really needed that extra change. Maybe they didn’t. Perhaps the girl behind the counter might have been reached. Or maybe it’s God’s way of speaking to me. What ever God’s goal today, I’m glad I listened.
Have you ever listened to a prompting from the Lord and almost talked yourself out of it? Please share!
PS – No, that is not the burger I ate!
