Cheerful Giver

Little Johnny ponders financial decision


Hoping to develop his son’s character, a father once gave Little Johnny a penny and a quarter as he was leaving for Sunday School.

“Now Johnny, you put whichever one you want in the offering plate,” he said.

When Little Johnny returned, his father asked which coin he had given.

Little Johnny answered, “Well, just before they sent around the plate the preacher said, “The Lord loveth a cheerful giver,” and I knew I could give the penny a lot more cheerfully than I could give the quarter, so I gave the penny.”
