“A young man was getting ready to graduate from college.For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer’s showroom,and knowing his father could afford it he told him that was all he wanted.As graduation day approached,the young man awaited signs that his father has purchased the car…finally,on the morning of his graduation,his father called him into his private study.His father told him how much he loved him.He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.Curious,but somewhat disappointed,the young man opened the box and found a lovely leather-bound bible,with the young man’s name embossed in gold.
Angrily he raised his voice to his father and said:’with all the money you have you bought me a bible?’ and he stormed out of the house leaving the bible.Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business.He had a beautiful home and wonderful family,but realized his father was very old and thought perhaps he should go to him.He had not seen him since that graduation day.

“And if ye,being evil know how to give good gifts to your children,how much more shall your heavenly Father which is in heaven,give to those who ask Him”
As he read those words,a car key dropped from the back of the bible.It had a tag with the dealer’s name the same dealer who had the sport car he had desired…on the tag was the date of his graduation and the words…..
