I had a relative send me a text video this week on facebook. It was a Christian video that told a story that said it was going to give me chills.
Basically the story was of a person that felt god was telling him to get in his car at 10 o’clock at night. As he drove around aimlessly, he heard god tell him to stop at a store and buy a gallon of milk. Again he did as the “lord” was telling him.
Then the guy wondered what he should do with the gallon of milk. As he pondered this he “heard” god then tell him to stop at this random house and give the milk to the people living there. Reluctantly, he finally obeyed the voice in his head.
It just so happened that the family living in the house needed the milk to feed their baby, as they couldn’t afford to buy any due to financial hardships.
What a miracle. What perfect timing.
No…it didn’t cause me to have chills. It actually just made me think about kids in hospitals with illnesses like cancer. I can only imagine how much of a slap in the face stories like this may be.
Is god concerned with a kid needing milk and providing for them, but not concerned with another kid with a life threatening illness? Where is the help for these kids? He can provide milk but not heal all the kids with cancer?
The milk story, that is likely pure fiction anyway, did not give me chills. It just raised more questions.
I’m not sure if this relative of mine knows about my unbelief. I haven’t exactly made an announcement to family. At the end of the video it asks if you would send this “amazing story” to everyone on your friends list. Also to send it to the person who sent it to you if you were blessed by it. Needless to say I didn’t send it back.
