Preacher Charles Spurgeon tells of a man to whom was entrusted a large sum of money for the benefit of a poor minister. He thought it would be best to distribute the gift, instead of sending it all at once.

So he mailed the poor minister five pounds and, inside the envelope, he placed a little slip of paper on which was written, "More to follow."

Thus, for ever so long, the old minister received regularly his little package of money, always with the "More to follow" note inside.

And this is how God deals with us. The grace we receive today is but a pledge of that which will be given tomorrow; that which we receive tomorrow will likewise be stamped, "More to follow."

(From a sermon by Steve Shepherd, The Grace of God, 11/1/2011)
