While eating at an outdoor cafe in the historic district, an art connoisseur noticed a mangy little kitten lapping up milk from a saucer. The saucer, he realized with a start, was a rare and precious piece. After finishing his meal, we went up to the owner and offered him two dollars for the cat.
“It’s not for sale,” said the owner.
“Now, now” said the collector, “that cat is just ugly and no one would want it, but I’m eccentric. I like to help out underprivileged animals. I’ll raise my offer to five dollars.”
“It’s a deal,” said the proprietor with a smile, and pocketed the five on the spot.
“For that amount I’m sure you won’t mind throwing in the saucer,” said the connoisseur. “The little kitten seems so content drinking from it.”
“No way,” said the owner. “That’s my lucky saucer. I’ve already sold 26 cats so far this week drinking from it!”
God’s retirement plan is out of this world.
Thought for the day
“You have six days in which to do your work, but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me” (Exodus 20:9-10 GNT).
Sunday is our Sabbath, which simply means a “day of rest.” Here are three things to do on your Sabbath. 1. Rest your body 2. Recharge your emotions and 3. Refocus your spirit.
