A little girl acknowledged a gift from her aunt: "Thank you for your present. I have always wanted a pin cushion, but not very much."

Many Christians act this way about the will of the Lord. They are so filled with their own desires that they do not want what He sends. The whole Word teaches us that He reserves His best gifts or those who delight to do His will.
