The Secular and the Spiritual
While on a walk with a friend, she spied a penny on the ground and immediately picked it up and said, “Find a penny, pick it up and all the day you’ll have good luck”.
While on a walk, my friend Debbie found money on the ground, immediately picked it up and said, “In God We Trust”. She proceeded to tell me a story about how finding money reminds her to trust God in all things.
The one saying was secular “luck”, and the other had a spiritual message. I have never looked at money found on the ground the same again. It is a truth that trusting God is everything.
The Money Dish
Place a “money bowl” on your dining table. When you go on a walk with your children, have them look for money on the ground. You will be amazed at how often you will find money when looking for it. Teach them to place the coins in the “money bowl and show them the imprint on the coin, “In God We Trust.” When it gets full, have your children bring it to a food bank or give to someone in need. Tell them how God can do much with little.
