Good morning! How well do you all know your alphabet? How many can tell me what the first letter is in the English alphabet? (Let them answer.) That's right. The first letter is A. (Show the A.) Now what is the last letter in the English alphabet? (Let them answer.) You're right again. The last letter is a Z. (Show the Z.)
If someone were to say to you that he knew something from A to Z, what would he be saying? (Let them answer.) It would mean that he knew it all. He would mean that he knew it completely.
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff.
