By A. C. Quinn

What a strange place for one to claim to find the Lord, but that is exactly what happened in South Texas not too long ago. Some benighted individual purportedly saw the image of Jesus in an old antique frying pan. Newspapers must be desperate for news, because many of them, including our own local paper carried the article and a picture of the frying pan.
This is but a prime example superstition at its worst. To imply that one has actually seen the Lord Jesus Christ in a greasy residue in a frying pan is beyond all reason; however, some religious bodies rely on such reports and call them miracles whether they be claimed images in a frying pan or an image in a dirty screen door.
The children of God are warned against such “vain janglings,” “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:” (1 Tom. 6:20). The apostle Paul further warns brethren, “Beware least any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ”(Col.2:8). There are, of course, other such warnings about the superstitious as it is related to religion, and so much of that superstition is in claims of miracles which never happened.
Cheerful Giving
     A mother wanted to teach her daughter a moral lesson.  She gave the little girl a quarter and a dollar for church.  "Put whichever one you want in the collection plate and keep the other for yourself," she told the girl.
     Sunday, when they were coming out of the church, the mother asked her daughter which amount she had given.
     "Well," said the little girl, "I was going to give the dollar, but just before the collection the preacher said that God loves a cheerful giver.  I knew I'd be a lot more cheerful if I gave the quarter, so I did.
