Young Wisdom

So, recently at church, all of the young kids were instructed to bring something that they thought was Holy to church. A lot of kids brought a picture of their family, or a cross, etc. but one little girl brought a rock. When asked why the little girl thought the rock was Holy she said she thought the rock was pretty.

"Well, a rose is pretty too, why did you bring a rock instead of a rose?" the little girl was asked.

"Because you have to look for the beauty in this rock. See, it has little crystals in this rock. It reminds me that if we look for the beauty in everything, then the whole world would be filled with treasures."

Wow, what a profound statement from a 5 year-old little girl; she moved a whole church of adults to tears.
