I love to go to garage sales. The thrill of the hunt for good bargains gets my adrenaline flowing, my blood pumping. One day, in a particularly reflective mood, I thought about the bargain the Lord has offered me, indeed, all of us.
He paid the price for all my sins. I didn't have to pay Him a thing in return except to accept Him into my heart, into my life. What a bargain. And yet...
I have not fully taken advantage of this most precious bargain of all and, at times, have even counted it of little worth. How foolish of me. I am an unprofitable servant, failing to appreciate the ultimate of bargains.
So, for today, I am grateful for the Lord's sacrifice in providing me with the greatest bargain of all.
