Pennies are a nuisance. The U.S. Treasury might even discontinue them. It actually costs1.8 cents to produce a penny. In 2013, taxpayers lost $105 million on the making of pennies and nickels.
My son picked up the penny again. “Can you even believe this is on the ground?! Should we look for the owner? Maybe they’re missing it. If we can’t find them, can I keep it?! I’ll put it in my piggy bank!”
I saw the penny as insignificant. He saw it as a treasure. He valued what I believed had no value.
In the Bible, there are three insignificant people found throughout the law and the prophets.
