Take A Penny, Leave A Penny

You remember when we used to pay cash for things? At the register, there was usually a coin jar with the the sign, “Take a penny, leave a penny.” The idea was that a penny really wasn’t a lot of money. If you had extra, you could throw your change in there. If you were a few cents short, you could grab some change out of the jar.

What if we apply that on a larger scale in our lives? What if we freely give of our gifts without expectation of it being directly reciprocated? Let’s give it a try and start a movement! We give to the people that need it, when we have extra to give, whether it be money, time, a smile. When we are in need, of love, comfort, support, it might come from a different source. No tally marks of who we owe or who owes us.
