See a penny, take it. But why? Not for luck.

The real reason you should never bypass a penny is because of God, according to a post shared by several Facebook users.

These users shared the story of a very wealthy man who, on his way to an extravagant dinner, stopped to pick up a dirty penny from the sidewalk.

“He held it and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he had found a great treasure,” the messages read. “How absurd! What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take the time to stop and pick it up?

Eventually, the man shares the reason he picked up the penny – as inscribed on the coin is “In God We Trust”, according to the posts.

The story continues :

“‘And if I trust in God, God’s name is holy, even on a coin. Every time I find a coin, I see this inscription. It is written on every coin of the United States. United, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message right in front of me telling me to trust Him? Who am I to deliver it? When I see a room, I pray, I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that moment. I choose the coin as a response to God; that I trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I treasure it as if it were gold. I think that’s God’s way of starting a conversation with me.Luckily for me, God is patient and the pennies are plentiful!

“When I was shopping today, I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized that I was worried and worried in my mind. about things I couldn’t change. I read the words, ‘In God We Trust’, and I had to laugh. Yes, God, I get the message.

“I seem to have found an inordinate number of pennies over the past few months, but then the pennies are plentiful! And God is patient.”

The original author of the post is unknown, although a faith-based Facebook group called Stand on the Rock shared the same words in 2015. This post has been shared 300,000 times.

“Sounds like a good reminder of God’s blessings,” another commented.
