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!

The sky is so large
Yet we often see just clouds
He gave so much more
