Another Black Friday has come and gone and the only thing left are empty pockets. According to a recent poll, Black Friday spending was up significantly from the previous two years. A lot of this probably had to do with the sales that many companies were promoting. Everything from fabrics and clothes to toys and electronics were on sale over the Thanksgiving weekend. Many shoppers were willing to go all out and to line up outside their favorite stores in the early evening on Thanksgiving Day, hoping to be one of the first to find the best deals and save big.
I like great deals just as much as the next person, just not enough to endure the craziness of Black Friday. In fact, the best deal in town is not found on Black Friday anyway. Instead, the best deal in town can be found all day, every day, 365 days out of the year without all the madness. The best deal in town is the deal that God offers us. He offers us everlasting life, endless bliss, joy over heartache and pain. God offers us salvation, and there is no better deal than that! Nothing we could ever buy on Black Friday is a better offer than the offer God has made us.
My question to you is very simple, “Are you willing to go all out and do whatever you have to for the offer God has made you?” It’s the offer of a lifetime! Why not take hold of that offer today? Why not tell your friends about the great deal that God is offering? We all know everyone is looking to score the best deal in town and in the end, the person who accepts God’s offer will save big!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
Now That’s Something to Think About!
