Best Buy #281 - The Night Before 'Black Friday'

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. – Colossians 3:17

I am always amazed at the number of people who camp out days before Black Friday at store to make sure they get the best deal possible on what they want. It’s something they want for themselves or someone they love. It’s important to them enough to be inconvenienced this way.

In the big picture, the best deals in life are peace, joy, mercy and grace. You don’t need to line up to receive these for yourself or for all you love. It is freely given by One who was greatly inconvenienced by dying on a cross on Good Friday. His love for us put Him on the cross willingly. Are we thankful for God’s love that we are willing to express it in worship and godly living, or is it too much of an inconvenience?

Prayer: Dear God, I thank you for the way you showed your love to me in a manner that was beyond understanding. I pray that I may always express my gratitude each day by living for you. Amen

Faith Tip: Today consider how you can express your love for God and live it out.
