THE LOST PENNYWhat a worthless “value”!
Is it worth looking for!
(We, people, would most often refuse)
“It is just a
There is nobody
worthless for God!
God has created
everybody in his resemblance
And has wished
for each a significant task –
“He has loved us while we were yet sinners” –
While we were “worthless” –

The Calendar of a Pastor
1. Begin each new day and live it as if it was you last; act as if you
still had many years ahead.
2. After God services and other spiritual duties are completed the final
immediate work that should be done on Sunday
– (at least) is to read the Word of God for the following Sunday
3. Joyful in spirit, enraptured in prayer, patient with people,
temperate against lust.
