Today I am linking to a post made by my awesome friend, Kim McCool. Her blog, Just One More Thing, is great fun to read. Kim has five kiddos with her husband George and they have an incredible love story that I hope she gets down on paper someday because if she does, I’m linking to it!
Kim has been a huge encouragement to me in many ways, not the least of which about tithing. She always says “It’s God’s economy. It doesn’t work on paper but somehow, it works out.” Hard to argue with a testimony like that.
One story that Kim didn’t tell is about the time she and George felt led to pay for the cleft palate surgery of a child in a third world country. They put the check in the mail, and later received a check from the IRS due to overpaying their taxes. The check was the exact amount of the cleft palate surgery that they had paid for with the faith that things would work out. The McCools are living, breathing proof that obedience to God will not return void!
So without further ado: Just One More Thing.
PS: Some people might take issue with the fact that the McCool family benefitted from someone else’s travails. Exodus 33:19 states “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” We have no idea if there was any reason at all why bad things happen, and it’s foolishness to speculate or concern ourselves with it. The fact of the matter is that the McCools were faithful, and they were cared for! Praise God!
