Ministering to the Lord – September 20, 2023

With a heavy schedule of appointments, President Lincoln had an elderly woman with no official business in mind ask to see him. As she entered his office, he rose to greet her and asked how he might be of service. She replied that she had not come in to ask a favor. She had heard that the President liked a certain kind of cookie, so she baked some for him and brought them to his office. With tears in his eyes, Lincoln responded “You are the very first person who has ever come into my office asking not, expecting not, but rather bringing me a gift. I thank you from the bottom of my heart”.
