    A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For
    many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's
    showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told
    him that was all he wanted.

    As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited
    signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the
    morning of his graduation his father called him into his private
    study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine
    son, and 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. Angrily,
    he raised his voice at his father and said, "With all your money you
    give me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy

    Many years passed and the young man was very successful in
    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. Before he could make
    arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had
    passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He
    needed to come home immediately and take care things.
    When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and
    regret filled his heart.

    He began to search his father's important papers and
    saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With
    tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he
    read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope
    taped behind the Bible.
    It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the
    sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation,
    and the words...PAID IN FULL.

    How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not
    packaged as we expected?
