This morning I drove my husband into work. We stopped for gas and while pumping the gas, the man in the car next to us got out of his car and came over to my husband. He gave him two bottles of water and said, “I’m on my way to the airport and I won’t need these. Would you like them?” My husband took them and we drove off thinking how odd that was. About 10 minutes later, the heat gauge on the car began creeping dangerously high. We pulled over and my husband determined that the coolant was low. We had no water in the car when we left that morning, but thanks to a stranger at the gas station, we now had two bottles of water which went into the radiator of the car. We were able to make it to my husband’s work with no further problems.
The problem I always have with just saying, “see? God looks out for us” is that if we give Him credit for odd events that go well, it begs the question of where He is when things don’t go well. I suppose He has reasons for each. I’m just glad that this morning He didn’t want us broken down on the side of the road.
