Robert Wright, Sr.

Robert Wright, Sr.

Psalm 119:160
The sum of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.

One of my favorite people in our church has always been Robert Wright, Sr.  For many years he was our treasurer and a great friend to my dad.  He loved to eat at our church dinners, saying that he was just "having a taste" of each item.  He loved his coffee and he loved talking history with my dad.  The board members used to joke about him.  Every month, especially when the budget was not met, the bills still got paid.  He could not understand how that could be.  He would explain that he would add up the bills, add up the budget and they did not balance, yet the bills would be paid. He was a good mathematician, so this boggled him.  I would always giggle because with Christ, you can't think normally.  If you are in Christ, doing his work, he is going to provide for you in his way, whether your columns add up or not.
