One night a wife found her husband standing over their newborn baby’s crib. Silently she watched him. As he stood looking down at the sleeping infant, she saw on his face a mixture of emotions: disbelief, doubt, delight, amazement, enchantment, skepticism. He would stand back, shake his head and say, “Amazing,” while smiling from ear to ear.
Touched by his unusual display and the deep emotions it aroused, her eyes glistened as she slipped her arms around him.
“A penny for your thoughts,” she whispered in his ear.
“Isn’t it amazing!” he replied. “When you take the time and really look close, how can anyone make a crib like that for only $39.99!”
I started early teaching my kids the value of a dollar. From then on, they demanded their allowances in gold.
Thought for the day
“Never tell your neighbors to wait until tomorrow if you can help them now.” (Proverbs 3:28 TEV).
Servants are always on the lookout for ways to help others. When they see a need, they seize the moment to meet it.
