Needs & Wants

If you look back through my posts, you will see several instances where I documented how God had come through and met our needs.  Sometimes at the last minute (or so it seemed) but it always worked out.  Lately I have been noticing how He gives us some “wants” too.  A few months ago, I saw on the Acura Owner’s forum that people were changing their license plate bulbs to LEDs.  Makes the plate show up whiter and brighter and looks pretty cool.  But each bulb (there are two), were about $10 each!  That is an extravagance we don’t need.  So I filed it away in my mind and went about my business.  Wouldn’t you know that about two weeks ago, in my daily “super special electronics sale” email, there was a set of TWO LED bulbs on sale for $3.99 including shipping?!  Ha ha  I thanked God and bought them (and they look great!).

I have to be respectful to the Creator of the universe, but at the same time, I often think of Him as “one of the guys” who feels what we feel and knows what it is like to have wants – as frivolous and unnecessary as they may be.
