Thankful For What Did Not Happen

Several years ago some German immigrants to America brought over this story of a woman living on a farm in Germany who brought to her minister an amount in German money equivalent to about $10 in American money.

As she laid down the money she said: “In former years I have had to pay about this amount in medicine. This year there has been no sickness in our family. I want to show my gratitude to the Lord in this way.”

Some time later this same woman again came to her minister with about $5, explaining that many of her neighbors had suffered some losses in a recent windstorm, but that her farm had been spared. “I bring the church this donation as an offering of thanks.”
