A penny worth a million bucks

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

It may seem odd to tell your kids to save their pennies. It is a good principle and an important life lesson. However, if you put together all of those pennies saved they probably won’t become a million bucks. But this one penny is worth a million  and some change. Check out this article, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/26/1943-bronze-penny-bill-simpson_n_1916043.html .

Think about it for a minute - a mistake in a factory made a cheap piece of metal, worth an incredible amount. It is hard to believe and hard to find other instances that repeats this type of transformation. Rare things, historical artifacts and maybe precious gems transform value, but a mistake? Sometimes hard work or a wise investment will yield an multiplied amount, too.  Yet, I know Someone who transforms mistakes and evil  into something amazing, that will last. Check out some scriptures Genesis 50:20, Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8: 28, John 3:16
