I have known Tiffany Nason for years. She was one of the younger girls in the youth group when we joined Haywood. This is going to seem like a ‘diss,’ but I swear it isn’t one. Tiffany is one of those girls I fully expected to have a ‘normal’ life. She is beautiful and smart so you knew she’d get a great job, marry a nice guy, have 2 wonderful kids, and settle in for a peaceful non-bumpy life.
But when she got married it seemed like her and her husband decided that they were going to take some not as popular parts of the Bible very seriously.
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’
You probably didn’t read that, so I’ll break it down real quick Giphy-style:
God: Hey, I want to give you your inheritance because when I needed food or a drink or a friend or a jacket or healing or encouragement you were there.
God: When you gave to the least of these, the ones everyone else forgot about or deemed not important, you were doing it for me.
So Tiffany and Matt are currently on a crazy adventure where they are, well, adopting babies left and right. No, seriously. In 4 short weeks they became mom and dad to a set of triplets. That’s in addition to the 3 children they already have.
That’ 3 babies.
That’s 6 kids total.
And by insane I mean that they are living and loving in such a way that I look at God and say, “Wow. Your love is making things happen.”
