Peace Of Mind With A Ten-Dollar Bill


"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9

I have heard the phrase "finders keepers losers weepers" throughout my life. Yet, recently, I felt that I didn't want to be a keeper of something I found. My car was in great need of a car wash; I proceeded to enter the wash code into the machine, I looked down on the ground, and there lay a ten-dollar bill. As I picked it up, my thoughts immediately were, "someone will be looking for this." I pulled into the car wash, and I began to pray. Praying while in the car wash is something I have talked about before in this postSo I did exactly that. I prayed for the person that lost it and that they would possibly start tracing their steps to where they had been and realize they lost it at the car wash. 

This ten-dollar bill did not belong to me. I wanted the peace of mind knowing that perhaps if this person did indeed come back to the car wash, it would be there for him or her. After my car wash, I brought it into the station attached to the car wash and told the attendant, "I found this ten-dollar bill on the ground by the car wash; maybe someone might come back looking for it." He said, "ok, thanks." My prayer is that the person that lost the ten-dollar bill will receive it back. 

A ten-dollar bill may seem like a small amount to be concerned about; however, it might be a significant amount to the person that lost it. At times, it can be hard to know what the right thing is to do. When we are unsure, we can pray for guidance and ask God to "let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." 

Let us pray together,

Dear Heavenly Father,

Help each of us not to grow weary in doing good. When we are unsure of what to do, we trust You and only You for guidance. 

In the name of Jesus, we pray,
