Elementary:

Good morning ___school name____.

Wherever you are in the building, please stand up for Jesus and join me in the sign of our faith.

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

This morning I would like to share with you a short story. I hope you enjoy it.

One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip out to the country.  The father wanted to show his son how poor people live.  Together they spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.  On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "Son, how was the trip?"

"It was great dad!  "Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.

"Oh yes, said the son."

Well son, tell me, what did you learn from our trip?  The son answered:"

We have a swimming pool that reaches to the middle of the garden and

they have a creek that has no end.

We have lanterns hanging in our garden and they have all the beautiful

stars at night. 

Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. 

We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go

beyond our sight. 

We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to

protect them.

We buy our food, but they work very hard in their gardens and grow

theirs themselves.

We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. 

The boy's father was speechless. 

Then his son added, "Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor WE ARE."

Isn't it amazing how differently people think?  It makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Let us pray,

Help us Lord, to be like the young boy in this story, to see the world with clear vision, and with love in our hearts.  Help us to appreciate all of our blessings each and every day!             

AMEN
