When God gives you apple slices instead of fries, what will you do?

Key Points:

  • You can’t order up God like a kids’ meal. We don’t get to pick and choose what God is like or what he gives us or doesn’t give us.
  • What God gives us is good for us. The things he gives us aren’t always the things we want, but what he gives us is good for us.

Memory Verse:

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
