Mother Teresa of Calcutta, India died as a world-known figure. But who would have ever thought she would have attained such influence when she first began?
What did she have to recommend her? A tiny woman, she began with the most meager of resources. Mother Teresa told her superiors, “I have three pennies and a dream from God to build an orphanage.”
“Mother Teresa,” her superiors said, “you can’t build an orphanage with three pennies . . . with three pennies you can’t do anything.”
“I know,” she said, smiling, “but with God and three pennies I can do anything.”
Mother Teresa understood the principle of the seed. It takes very little — but very little blessed by God — and miracles can occur.
This, of course is akin to Jesus’ teaching that if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can produce an enormous bush (Matthew 17:20). That is a constant law in God’s world.

With God and three pennies, what is God asking YOU to do to build God’s Kingdom?
IF YOU ARE PRAYING FOR IT, GOD IS WORKING ON IT!!
