A woman was at work when she received a phone call that her daughter was very sick with fever.
She left her work and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication for her daughter.
When returning to her car she found that she had locked her keys in the car.
She was in a hurry to get home and did not know what to do. So she called her home and told the baby sitter what had happened and that she did not know what to do.
The baby sitter told her that her daughter was getting worse. She suggested, “You might find a coat hanger and use that to open the door.”
The woman looked around and sure enough found an old rusty coat hanger that had been thrown down on the ground, probably by someone else who at some time or other had locked keys in the car.
Then she looked at the hanger and said, “I do not know how to use this.”
She bowed her head and asked God earnestly to send her some help.
Within five minutes an old rusty car pulled up, with a dirty, greasy, bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rug on his head.
The woman thought, “My God, this is what you sent to help me?” She was so desperate.
The man got out of his car, looked at her and asked if he could be of any help.
She said, “Yes, my daughter is very sick. I stopped to get her some medication and stupidly locked my keys in my car. I must get home to her. Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?”
He said, “Sure”.
He took the coat hanger and walked over the car, and in less than one minute the car was opened.
She hugged the greasy old man and through her tears said, “Thank you so much! You are a nice angel!”
The man replied, “Lady, I’m neither nice nor an angel. I just got out of prison today. I was in prison for car theft and have only been out for about an hour.”
The woman hugged the man again and again and with sobbing tears cried out loud,”Oh, Thank you God! You have sent me a Professional!”
Ask and you shall receive; knock and it shall be opened. Why blame Him if you lack humility enough to acknowledge your own inability.
Lesson to learn
Be sure, God does not deal with the second best.
