Inspiring Money Stories


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said, “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” After a weekend of disappointing news, it seemed like people looked for inspiration in several areas. Demonstrations, peaceful (for the most part) vigils, and dedications were held throughout the country. I sought comfort in the Word, and I encourage others to do the same. Sometimes, God is the only One who can lift our spirits in this troubled world.

On other occasions, I will admit that it helps to know that there are good human beings on this earth. So, I searched for some money stories which would show that some people still have a heart for others. These money stories confirmed that everyone is not consumed by hate, and it gives me hope for a better society! I chose to share these stories with you, and I expect for them to do the same.
