Throwing Money Away

I was taking a stroll through my fair city of Bellemeade Kentucky and on my homeward leg of my journey. I noticed a car up ahead actually stopping at a stop sign, a rare event in these parts. Then I observed the driver’s door opening and the driver dumped the ash tray on to the street, closed the door and made a right turn to drive away. I was incensed that some one would dirty up our street like that. I ran up to the corner but the car was already out of sight so I did not get an ID on the driver or the car.
Then I examined the pile of debris on to my amazement it was not debris from smoking but money. It was coins; to be exact it was penny’s dimes, nickels and a few quarters just thrown away. Some one threw money away.  I was incredulous that money was just tossed out. It could have been donated to charity or used to make a purchase but it was dumped out on the street.   
Being a good mayor who wants to keep his city clean and neat I retrieved the afore mentioned illegal deposit and brought it home. When I counted it I came up with $2.36 just tossed away. What is wrong with some people?
I need to take more walks around here.

The Crooked Path

How many ways can we find to take a crooked path?
When driving your car at a too fast rate do  you slow down when you see a police car up ahead? Do you flirt with a coworker and hope your spouse won’t find out?  When a cashier gives you too much change, do you give it back? What do you do with a valuable item you find in a public place?
Even if the chances of getting caught on a crooked path are small we are personally damaged by being on that path. If we practice a life of personal integrity we will  live a more secure and happier life. If we practice uncompromising honest and faithfulness we will never have to deal with the embarrassment of being caught on the crooked path.
Leave the crooked path to others and walk the straight path in the security of integrity.

Come Holy Spirit

Today is "Pentecost" in the Christian Church. The event of the birth of the Church Universal is found in the book of Acts chapter two.
Today we Christians celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit to empower the Church. We read that there were people of many nations and languages gathered in Jerusalem and when the Holy Spirit filled the Apostles every one there heard the Gospel preached each in their own native language. Some five thousand sols were saved that day and took the Gospel home to their native land.
May the Holy Spirit fill the church anew today.

Happy Birthday Christian Church. Cake
