The price of a miracle

A little girl named Tess once took her money box to her local pharmacy, where the pharmacist was busy talking to a well dressed man. She said she wanted to buy a miracle. He asked her why, and she told him that her little brother was very sick with something growing in his head, and her father had said that only a miracle would save him. The pharmacist was about to tell her he didn’t sell miracles when the well dressed man asked how much money she had. She showed him her handful of coins and he told her that was just enough for a miracle. That man was Dr.Carlton Armstrong, a famous neuro-surgeon, and he operated on the little boy for free and saved his life.
How much does a miracle cost? That one cost one dollar and eleven cents – plus a child’s faith. And it’s childlike faith that is the prerequisite for every miracle.
