That's My Cow in There!

  1. 1. That's My Cow in There!
  2. 2. Many years ago in a little town… I wonder why that kid is crying? Maybe he didn't want to walk down here with an offering.
  3. 3. Why are you crying?
  4. 4. That’s my cow in there!
  5. 5. Your what?
  6. 6. I always wanted a cow of my own, but we lived in the city … … and you aren’t allowed to keep a cow in your backyard. Understandably.
  7. 7. But nine months ago, we moved to the countryside. And my Dad told me I could have a cow now, but I would have to pay for it.
  8. 8. I’ve been running errands to save money. I picked up a paper route. I get up at four in the morning and deliver newspapers. I’ve been able to save five dollars!
  9. 9. Why are you putting the money you’ve saved for the cow into the offering?
  10. 10. I heard God's voice. He said if I would give Him the money I had saved for a cow, He would give me the cow.
  11. 11. Then dry up those tears! You’re getting the best end of the deal!
  12. 12. This boy has just given to God the money he was saving to buy a cow. … Pastor, God just spoke to me.
  13. 13. What did God tell you? He told me to give that boy a cow. I own a ranch and have thousands of them.
  14. 14. The cattle on a thousand hills belong to God!* And He knows how to speak to somebody to turn one of them loose. (*Psalm 50:10)
