A little girl told an older friend that she was going to give her father a pair of slippers for his birthday.
"Where will you get your money?" asked the friend.
She opened her eyes wide and said, "Why, father will give me the money."
For a moment the friend was silent as she thought that the father would buy his own birthday present.
And the father loved the little girl and appreciated the gift, even though he paid for it himself.

Psa 50:12-14 (GNB): (God says) "If I were hungry, I would not ask you for food, for the world and everything in it is mine. Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats? Let the giving of thanks be your sacrifice to God, and give the Almighty all that you promised.”
“In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth; God is pleased when we're pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker's praise without anxiety.” - A.W. Tozer.
