The Farmer and the Atheist

Chaplain Ronnie Melancon

An atheist neighbor came over to speak to the old farmer as he worked in his garden. He told the farmer, “I don’t believe in your God and if he did exist he wouldn’t be that smart. See that little vine with that great big watermelon on it, and that great big oak branch with that little bitty acorn on it? Good sense says the watermelon should be on the big branch and the acorn on the little vine.”


About that time a big gust of wind blew and the oak tree branch shook. Down came the acorn and hit the atheist on top the head. The old Farmer smiled and said, “Aren’t you glad that wasn’t a watermelon?”

Moral of the story is God knows what He’s doing, so trust Him. Whenever I see a coin on the ground, I remember that our money has on it “In God we trust”. I always say “I trust you God” when I find a coin.

Pray that the Lord will strategically place a coin at the right time in your life, so you can remember to trust Him.

Lord Bless,

Chaplain Ronnie Melancon
