Go to Jail, Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200.

You might recognize the title of this post. You certainly will if you have ever played Monopoly.

As I mentioned in my last post, (click here to read) I recently was on a road trip with my family.

In the rule book from the original Monopoly game, there is a reference to Atlantic City. The creator of Monopoly had vacationed in Atlantic City with his wife. When he made the game, he named all of the streets after streets that he saw in Atlantic City.

So I made it my mission, as a lover of board games, to find these streets.

There are some websites with pertinent information and of course generic internet searches.

I was warned by some locals that the streets are not exactly the same ones that are used in the game.

I was lenient in my expectations. Over the course of the week, I took selfies with all of the streets in the game.

Take a look.

I hope you can read the words!

My wife and kids were also enjoying the adventure.

Before the week was out, I completed the quest!


So what would the connection be here?

John 10:10 says that Jesus came “to give life and life more abundantly”.

It is my opinion that my quest in Atlantic City was part of the “life more abundantly”.

God gives blessings to His children. And I feel blessed by HIm every day.

What blessing are you enjoying today?
