Two Small Coins

The great and famous were congregating in heaven, those who had been remembered down the ages.

‘I’m Moses who encountered God in the burning bush and led the people of out of Egypt towards the Promised Land.’

I’m Elijah. I was fed by God in the wilderness. God guided me to overcome Ahab and give guidance to the people of Israel.’

‘I was known as John the Baptist. I prepared the way for the coming of Jesus and was able to baptise him in the rived Jordan.’

‘I’m Paul. God met me on the road to Damascus. I suffered much for my Saviour, wrote many letters to fellow believers and eventually died a martyr’s death.’

‘I only gave all my savings to God in the shape of two small coins.’

To each and every one God said, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’
