Weight, measure, value . . . simple concepts? Not really!
When I was very young, my dad offered me a dollar at the fair. I was disappointed. I heard coins jingling in his pocket! Why would I want a piece of paper, I thought, coins were heavier so that must be more . . and better! Silly little me! Not always! How do we decide value throughout our daily lives?
What do you value the most? Being an adult, I know 25 pennies weigh more than a dollar but have less value, but this doesn’t mean I always get the right answer when I answer the question just posed here.
- The old lady across the street is looking bone weary as she rakes her leaves. Mine are done so I can relax and read a book. Value?
- Sunday morning after a tiring week. I don’t need to get up for church. Value?
- The 4 year old is crying but my] show goes off in 15 minutes. Probably nothing, she can wait. Value?
WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST? The answer lies in your HEART!
