The Magic Penny

"Love is something if you give it away, give it away, give it away. Love is something if you give it away, you end up having more...It's just like a magic penny, hold it tight and you won't have any. Lend it, spend it, and you'll have many, they'll roll all over the floor....."

Magic Penny by Malvina Reynolds 1955

There is an urgency about loving one another. Talk about waking up to smell the coffee....It's time to wake up and love someone right now! Magic Penny is a children's song with a totally adult meaning. When introducing someone special, I have heard announcer's say, "lets give it up for....." It's time to give up all of our love. It's time to give it all away! In I Kings 17:7-16 we find the story about Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath. Elijah was told to go to the widow for food, but she only had enough flour and oil for a single meal for her and her son. "For this is what the God of Israel says: 'The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry'"...."She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family. For the jar of flour was not used up and the jar of oil did not run dry." (Vs 14-16)). When we give away all of our love, it is never used up. Our love will become the never empty jar of flour and jug of oil. Love is really something if you give it away, you end up having more! Love is indeed like the magic penny, hold it tight and you won't have any....If we give it away we will have plenty. We will end up with more than we started with. Lets give that Magic Penny a try...

Have a great day...Give your love away... Love mark Phil.4:11
