A church member enjoyed fishing from a bridge in a park. One day, he felt a tap on his boot. He ignored it at first, but then he felt many small taps. He looked down and saw a squirrel. The small animal looked up with longing eyes.


He realized he was eating from a small bag of mixed nuts he had in his pocket. Well, he pulled out some nuts and handed them to the squirrel.


The man named the squirrel Tapper. Each time the man would go to the bridge, Tapper would race down the tree and tap the man’s feet. Each time, Tapper would get a feast of nuts and dried fruits. People who chanced to walk by smiled in surprise to see the relationship between the two.


Have you ever gotten a tap in church? Have you had a tap on your heart to respond to an offering appeal? Is God tapping on your heart right now to support the church budget ministries that touch the lives of the people in your community? If you feel that tap, take out your mix of bills and coins and hand them over with joy, because you are touching the lives of others.


This morning, listen to the taps of the Holy Spirit. “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21
