Priceless Currency

Nov. 12, 2021

My favorite home improvement store says, “Save Big Money” there.  While I’m certain I spend more money than I actually save, otherwise they’d go broke, I still frequent their locations!

Wouldn’t it be cool though if there really was some special currency, that was actually larger, more impressive, and given back to  you after purchase?  Come on marketing people, get on it!

That kind of happened to me this week…  I ran into that store toward the end of the day with a list longer than the time I had to complete.  Now I’m sure that never happens to you, but bear with me!  Anyway, I got what I needed and had mentally moved on to the next thing on my to do list as I strode with purpose out of the store…

No, a cashier did not run after me to hand me some big money I’d left at checkout!  Instead, as I went to my car, I was given something much bigger, more impressive, and unforgettable.  Once again, I was unexpectedly gob smacked by God’s splendor displayed in the sky. This time it was a sunset that stopped me and others in the parking lot and took our breath away.  Now that kind of currency is priceless!

Let’s keep our eyes open for the splendor of God all around us!

The heavens proclaim the glory of God
The skies display God’s craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or word;
their voice is never heard.
Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
and their words to all the world.
God has made a home in the heavens for the sun.
It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding.
It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race.
The sun rises at one end of the heavens
and follows its course and sets at the other end.
Nothing is hidden from its warmth.
Psalm 19:1-6
