Jacob’s Gift by Max Lucado

Jacob's Gift 2

“When you give a gift to one of God’s children, you give a gift to God….this is the lesson that young Jacob learns as a carpenter’s apprentice.

Rabbi Simeon announces to the boys in his shop that whoever builds the best project will work with him on the new synagogue.

Jacob loves working with wood. He just has to be selected. He thinks long and hard about what to build. It would be the best work Jacob has ever done.

With only a few hours left to finish his project, Jacob falls asleep, only to be awakened by a gleaming light. Jacob faces a tough choice. Tomorrow the rabbi will select the best apprentice, but tonight there’s a new baby without a place to sleep.”

Another touching and thoughtful story by Max Lucado. It will be available in the library shortly.
