Found Money (doing good with it)

by SomeGirl on January 30, 2010

I was finding a place for everything and getting rid of junk a couple of days ago and found an old Dave Ramsey FPU organizer…. I opened it up and thought, “Wouldn’t that be cool if there was money in here…” and tucked away in the first envelope was a crisp, new $50 bill (well, not so new since it had probably been there nearly a year). I was excited and started thinking about what I would do with it. Then the thought came that I needed to do something good with it, to fraddle it… fraddle it for someone else… fraddle it for God… I don’t know what, but something other than house decor items or what-not for me. Don’t get me wrong, many times before I’ve found money and rushed to Target, but this was different. I thought about sending it to an organization for Haiti, but felt strongly that I needed to do something else with it… So, I’m praying to see what God might have in mind for this $50 bill. Funny enough, for a fleeting moment I thought about buying tennis shoes with it. Here’s how my thoughts went, “Hey, maybe I could buy tennis shoes with it! But, $50 for tennis shoes??? Well, there were some for $12 at Target…but, what if I asked someone for tennis shoes (like on craigslist or something). hmmm.” Then later that day, I was talking with girlfriends about this experience and they both said, “What size shoe do you wear?!” I replied and they both have extra tennis shoes in my size that they offered to give me… crazy, hu!? So, now I’m praying and waiting to see what God would have me do with His money… any suggestions?
