You may recall that a couple of weeks ago I blogged something about counseling . I saw this lady who was mainly looking for sympathy and a quick handout. When I asked her if I could pray with her she responded by saying: "Well, if money is going to fall out the sky...". I then told her that I would not pray with her. She was a bit taken aback by this and we proceeded to chat until we got to a place where she invited me to pray with her.

On Saturday evening I got the following SMS from her: "Your God answered your prayers, but He gave me secondhand stuff!"

I wanted to get upset, but rather decided to smile, turn over in bed and fall asleep.

Indicative of how this materialist culture has us by the balls: she never paused to ask if it was useful stuff! The only criterion is whether it is new. This obscession with "new" is the sin of our affluent-aspiring society. Perhaps you can respond to her by suggesting that God is supplying her needs and not her wants.
