I know what God will do

 

 

Charles Spurgeon loved to tell about his grandfather, a minister, who was very poor. The one cow he owned had died, and his 10 children were without milk. His wife asked, "What will we do now?" "I cannot tell," he said, "but I know what God will do. We must have milk for the children and He will provide for us."

The next morning a man brought Spurgeon's grandfather a gift of 20 pounds from the ministers' relief fund, even though help had not been requested. A few days before, the relief committee had divided the funds for distribution and an amount of 5 pounds was left over. One of the members said, "There is poor Mr. Spurgeon down in Essex. Suppose we send it to him." "We'd better make it 10," said the chairman, "and I'll give an extra five." That made it fifteen. Another man added five more pounds. Those men knew nothing about Spurgeon's cow, but God knew.
