God’s Kin

By Pastor William Jenkins

December 7, 2006

League City News - League City Methodist Church Picture There is a wonderful story about a woman in Birmingham, Alabama, who on a cold winter morning saw a little boy standing on a grating outside a bakery. It was snowing and sleeting and the little boy was barefoot and had no coat. He was trying to warm himself with the air coming from the bakery grating.

When the woman saw him, her heart went out to him. She couldn’t stand seeing that little boy shivering in the cold. She bought him a nice warm coat and some shoes and socks. He thanked her and turned to walk away, but then he turned back and asked her a surprising question. “Lady, are you God’s wife?” She was embarrassed by the question and didn’t quite know how to answer. She replied thoughtfully, “No, I’m not God’s wife, but I am one of His children.” The little boy grinned and said, “I knew it! I knew it! I just knew you were some kin to Him!”

League City United Methodist Church is located at 1411 Main Street (FM 518), one block east of Interstate 45. For information, call the church offices at 281-332-1557 or visit the website at
