A Fortune Worth Keeping

I took my family to a Chinese restaurant where we passed around the fortune cookies afterward in order to share the funny things written inside (sometimes you can barely even reconstruct the poorly written English, but it makes for lots of good laughs).  As usual we were all having fun sharing our fortunes with each other when my son Bryce suddenly said, “Hey Dad, mine sounds a lot like my memory verse from Sunday School last week.”  He had my attention, but I was certain he was somehow misreading it so I had him read it aloud so we could all hear what it said: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  How do you like that?  I couldn’t believe a word-for-word quote of the KJV of Hebrews 11:1.  Now that was a “fortune” worth keeping (although I do prefer translations more up to date 😉 ).
