Six Little Girls by Pansy (PDF)
Six neighborhood girls were in the same Sunday-school class. They cared about dressing well and spent their time discussing clothes. Maynie wanted to witness more and to be like Jesus, so she decided to spite Satan by including the poor girl, Rachel, to be a part of their show. When she had a sore throat and had to miss Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma's, she was in for a real surprise. An important Scripture verse is: James 2:5—"Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?"
