From the Pastor:
Shortly after World War II came to a close, Europe began picking up the pieces. Much of the Old Country had been ravaged by war and was in ruins. Perhaps the saddest sight of all was that of the little orphaned children starving in the streets of those war-torn cities.
Early one chilly morning an American soldier was making his way back to the barracks in London. As he turned the corner in his jeep he spotted a little boy with his nose pressed to the window of a pastry shop. Inside the shop the cook was kneading dough for a fresh batch of donuts. The hungry boy stared in silence, watching every move.
The soldier pulled his jeep to the curb, stopped, got out and walked quietly over to where the little boy was standing. Through the steamed-up window he could see the mouth-watering morsels as they were being pulled from the oven, piping hot. The boy salivated and released a slight groan as he watched the cook place them onto the glass-enclosed counter ever so carefully.
The soldier's heart went out to the nameless orphan as he stood beside him. "Son… would you like some of those?" he questioned.
The boy was startled. "Oh, yes sir, I would!"
The American stepped inside and bought a dozen donuts, put them in a bag, and walked back to where the boy was standing in the foggy cold of the London morning. He smiled, held out the bag, and said simply, "Here you are."
As he turned to walk away, the G.I. felt a tug on his coat. He looked back and heard the child ask quietly: "Mister… are you God?"
We are never more like God than when we give. It has been said that we can give without loving, but we cannot love without giving. The Bible says, "For God so loved the world that he gave ..." (John 3:16)
When was the last time you were mistaken for God?
