God’s Wife

Morning Story and Dilbert

May 22, 2002

A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering With cold.

A lady approached the young boy and said, ‘My, but you’re in such deep thought staring in that window!’

‘I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes,’ was the boy’s reply.

The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her.

She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.

By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks.. Placing a pair upon the boy’s feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes..

She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him.. She patted him on the head and said, ‘No doubt, you will be more comfortable now..’

As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears in his eyes, asked her:

‘Are you God’s wife?’

  1. That’s a great story. I wish it happened more often in real life.

    This reminds me of a passage in Matthew (Matthew 25:34-41 to be exact) that parallels this story. I believe this is how we should show God’s grace, love, and mercy to this world. We really are the hands and feet of God. Thanks for sharing Kenny (from Morning Story and Dilbert — morningstoryanddilbert.wordpress.com)

    Plain old humanity seems to be a thing of the past. Not many people today think of helping someone else instead of themselves first.
