Pennies from Heaven

Sometimes our prayer life can be as simple as finding a penny and thanking God for all He has given.

Sometimes our needs can be met by simply saving “worthless” pennies for a long time.

Be thankful today.  Find something that inspires you to pray and be thankful.  Save up the “worthless” treasures that you stumble upon – they may come in handy some day!

Otha Anders saved his first penny more than 45 years ago when he found it on the ground.

The coin reminded him to pray and give thanks.

“I became convinced that spotting a lost or dropped penny was an additional God-given incentive reminding me to always be thankful,” said Anders, 73. “There have been days where I failed to pray and more often than not, a lost or dropped penny would show up to remind me.”

Fifteen five-gallon plastic water jugs and half a million pennies later, Anders on Tuesday deposited $5,136.14 into his account to go toward a recent dental bill.penny

Matthew 13:52 (Jesus) said to them, “Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”
