What God gave me freely, I should give back freely

During my 42 years of being a laborer in God’s ministry of Get High on Life, I’ve been privileged to address many groups.  One of the most exciting and interesting groups that I conduct is the DWI classes for people who have been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.

 

I try to keep the sessions open to the people who attend.  I allow them to speak, ask questions, and give opinions.  The classes are held three nights a month.  Most classes that others offer charge a fee to attend.  I choose not to charge, because I believe what God gave me freely, I should give back freely.

 

I, occasionally, have a few people who attend show their appreciation by giving Get High on Life, which is a non-profit organization, a donation.  The biggest I’ve ever received was a check for $150.  The problem was it bounced.  I’ve received many thank-you cards and, occasionally, I get a pack of Oreo’s, because that’s my favorite.

 

This past week, the last meeting happened to be on my birthday.  I received a card from one of the attendees which I thoroughly enjoyed.  I hope you get a kick out of it as I did.    On the cover it read:  “Once upon a time, a very special person was born who was destined to change the world.”  The inside read:  “Calm down, it’s not you.  It’s JESUS.  I think He’d want you to have a happy birthday, though.”
