Counting God’s Promises
Two little girls were counting their pennies. One said, “I have ten pennies.” “No,” said the first little girl, “You have just five pennies, the same as I. “But,” the second child quickly responded, “My father said that when he got home tonight he would give me five pennies; so I have ten pennies.” Trustfully, she counted as her’s what her father had promised. That’s exactly how a Christian can be poor in the estimation of the world, and at the same time, be rich in the things of God. A Christian counts as his whatever his heavenly Father has promised.
