The church is not made up of people who believe they are better than others...
rather of those who believe they ought to be better than they are.

The church is not made up of perfect people... but of people who follow a
perfect Lord and realize they ought to do the best they can.

The church is not made up of people who never make mistakes... but of those
who acknowledge their mistakes and try not to make the same ones again.

The church is not trying to withdraw from everyone... but rather
to bring everyone into its fellowship and love.

The church is not trying to set up arbitrary rules to hinder anyone...
but to show how following the rule of Christ helps us all.

The church is not trying to take the joy out of life... but to put real joy into life.

The church is not trying to make you feel ugly... but trying
to instill the beauty of holiness in your life.

 

In the churches of Christ we extend grace, welcome strangers, listen, share, laugh and cry.

In the churches of Christ we make mistakes, show mercy, give thanks, celebrate life and believe in love.

In the churches of Christ we are a FAMILY!

Your First 40 Days

 



 

 

THE PENNY

 

You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the sidewalk being good luck, gifts from angels, etc. Well, for a few moments listen to this twist on the story. Hopefully it will give you something to think about.

 

Several years ago, a wife and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband's employer's home. Arlene, the wife, was nervous about the weekend. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway, and cars costing more than her house. The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy live. The husband's employer was quite generous as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene, knowing she would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again, was enjoying herself immensely.

 

As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant that evening, the boss was walking slightly ahead of Arlene and her husband. He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long, silent moment. Arlene wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There was nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny that someone had dropped, and a few cigarette butts. Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the penny. He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he had found a great treasure.

 

How absurd, Arlene thought. What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take the time to stop and pick it up? Throughout dinner the entire scene nagged at her. Finally, she could stand it no longer. She casually mentioned that her daughter once had a coin collection, and asked if the penny he had found had been of some value. A smile crept across the man's face as he reached into his pocket for the penny and held it out for her to see. She had seen many pennies before! What was the point of this?

 

"Look at it," he said. "Read what it says."

 

She read the words "United States of America."

 

"No, not that; read further."

 

"One cent"?

 

"No, keep reading."

 

"In God We Trust"?

 

"Yes!"

 

"And?"

 

"And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy, even on a coin. Whenever I find a penny I see that inscription. It is written on every single United States coin and dollar, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message right in front of us telling us to trust Him. Who are we to pass it by? When I see a coin, I pray. I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that moment. I pick the coin up as a response to God that I do trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were gold. I think it is God's way of starting a conversation with me. Thank God."

 

Loved ones, when I was out walking one day, I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up. As I read the words, In God We Trust, I realized that I had been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I cannot change. I said a prayer and read the words again: "In God We Trust." I had to laugh. Yes, God, I get the message! It seems that I have been finding an inordinate number of pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are plentiful. And, God is patient...

 

May you each have a blessed life as you Trust in God.

 

 

THE SECRET TO HAPPINESS

 

I have learned there is little I can do in my life that will make me truly happy. I have also learned that most of the time I don’t need half of what I think I do. Therefore, I have learned to depend on God to make me happy and to meet my needs. When a need arises in my life, I have learned to TRUST GOD to supply according to HIS riches. God has never let me down! The Psalmist wrote, "Happy is that people, whose God is the LORD" (Psalm 144:15). This is the SECRET to Happiness.

 

You might say, “That’s too simple!” Well, take a moment and reflect over your own life. Possibly you once thought that a bigger house would make you happy, but it didn’t. Maybe you thought a better paying job would make you happy, but it didn’t. When did you really realize your greatest happiness? Was it when you were sitting on the floor with your grandchildren, playing games with your children, eating your favorite food, or reading a story? Those are all simple gifts from God.

 

Friend, you can’t depend on physical things (including money and people) to make you happy. Only God in His infinite wisdom can do that. God will take care of you. You simply must TRUST HIM. You must believe and really TRUST God! As you trust God for happiness in your life, please consider the following five suggestions: (1) Make up your mind to be happy (cf. Prov. 17:22). (2) Locate life’s center [Jesus Christ and Him crucified] (Col. 1:17-18; Gal. 2:20; John 14:6). (3) Define life’s purpose (Ecc. 12:13-14; Isa. 43:7). (4) Make the most of your time and blessings (Phil. 4:11-13; James 4:13-15). (5) Do something for someone else (Acts 20:35; Eph. 2:10).

Proverbs 3:5-6
