A little girl’s first-grade class held its “track and field” day. She won quite a few ribbons, among them one blue ribbon for a first place.

Later that day, when she came home, the blue ribbon was missing, and her mother asked what had happened to it. “Oh,” she said, “Bruce was crying because he didn’t win a first place ribbon, so I gave it to him.” A God Provide

Her mother hugged her and told her she thought it was very generous to give Bruce the ribbon. “Why not?” the little girl responded. “After all, I know that I won it.”

If only all of us, adults included, had such a clear idea of what things are really important in life, and what things are just decorations!
