Costing All You Have

"The B-Team Report," Connections: Newsletter of the First Presbyterian Church of Wichita Falls, December 2004

In one of the "Peanuts" comic strips, Charlie Brown cracks open his piggy bank. He says, "Look I’ve got $9.11 to spend on Christmas!"

Lucy is not impressed. She says, "You can’t buy something for everyone with $9.11, Charlie Brown."

Charlie Brown retorts, "Oh yeah? Well, I’m gonna try!"

"Then," Lucy continues, "they’re sure gonna be cheap presents."

"But," Charlie Brown says with absolute conviction, "nothing is cheap if it costs all you have."

Mark 12:41, Romans 8:32
