No Limits on God

Description

An Illinois family experiences how God multiplies generosity.

As Christmas approached last year, Matt and Summer Knobloch of Normal, Illinois, wanted to teach their children—Charlotte, Clive, and Cora—the true spirit of Christmas.

Even though family finances were tight, they started a “servant’s jar.” When Matt or Summer “caught” the children serving someone, they put loose change in the jar. The couple planned to match whatever the children earned on Christmas Eve, and the family agreed to spend the funds on items in the World Vision Gift Catalog.

When December 24 arrived, the change and match totaled $26, but they couldn’t decide on a gift. A few days later, Charlotte decided she would make and sell bookmarks for 25 cents each to financially help the family.

Touched, Summer suggested Charlotte instead put the money toward their still-undecided World Vision gift for a family in need. Through a boost from Summer’s Facebook friends, Charlotte’s sales brought the combined fundraising to $200.

But God still wasn’t done. In the last week of sales, a local business owner matched this new amount—bringing the total to $400. Summer says, “We are so amazed to look back at the hand of God in all of this. There are no limits to what God can do!”
