The Power of Giving

Several years ago, as we were getting ready to go to church, my daughters asked me for money to give in their Bible Study class.  I hadn't gotten paid yet, so I didn't have any money at all.  Then I remembered I had a peanut butter jar where I'd keep quarters for the laundry.  There were only two quarters in the jar, so I gave them each one.  I didn't have anything for myself to give that day.

Usually after church, we would walk home, take a nap and then go for a nice brief walk.  That day, while walking, I saw a beautiful flower on this huge green bush.  I went over to look at it, and on the dirt underneath the green bush there was a mountain of brand new, sparkling quarters!  I was beside myself with excitement.  I didn't know what to think, and then I remembered that I had given the church the only money I had - those two quarters in the peanut butter jar.

I always look back and remember the day that I found those quarters.  I believe that when you give - whether it's money, kindness, a smile or joy - you too will be blessed.
