Monday Mini-Sermon

Two friends were out for a walk when one looked down and saw a penny on the sidewalk.  As she reached down to pick up the well-worn penny, her friend said: "You know it is said to be good luck to find a penny."

Came her friend's reply, "O it is much more than good luck, it is God's blessing!"

"Why is that?"

Handing the penny to her friend, she replied, "Read what it says."

"United States of America."

"No, not that. Read further."

"One cent."

"No, turn it over."

"In God we trust."

"Yes!  If I trust in God, the very name of God is holy, even on a coin.  I consider this to be a blessing that God has dropped in front of me, reminding me to always trust in God."

May God drop a blessing in front of you today.
