I was at the mall today to get a Christmas gift for my niece, and saw this message clinging to a store window:
Buy one, get one 1/2 off.
One For You, One For Me!
I could go off on a rant about this picture, but I won’t.
I’ll just let the picture speak for itself to the fact that there is a deep sin problem in the life of every human being. I pray that we can remember what this season is really about, and worship the God who entered human history as a baby, Jesus, to seek and to save what was lost. Our God is a giver, not a taker. We continue to try to take all that we can get out of him, yet he gives us grace upon grace.
Lord, humble us and cause us to see what it really means to be generous, as you have been generous with us.
