Ever wish for a rich uncle?

Many people find it tough to make ends meet financially. But to break the chain of lack we need to look beyond human resources.

Do you remember the saying "I wish I had a rich uncle"? This person, not necessarily a relative, would be someone you could call when times got tough, someone who would give you the security of knowing he would always be there to help you meet your needs.

During a time in my life when family finances seemed to be quite a problem, the thought occurred to me, "Wouldn't it be nice to have a rich uncle!" As I was dwelling on this thought and all of its possibilities, I was suddenly filled with gratitude. I realized that I had Someone who could do infinitely more for me than any human uncle could, Someone who was ever present and who supplied my every need. This Someone, of course, is God.

How wide, Lord?
