Grocery Woes

I noticed a rather forlorn lady lifting up one turkey after another. She seemed to be discouraged by the prices.  

 On the spur of the moment, I asked “Do you have any turkey bucks to pay for your turkey?”

 She answered, “I don’t even know what a turkey buck is.”

Our local grocery store rewards early shoppers with ‘turkey bucks’ to use toward the price of a turkey. My coupons were soon to expire so was there to buy my bird.

Instead, I handed her mine and explained their purpose.

“Let me pay you the money,” she exclaimed.

 “No”, I replied. “You enjoy them.”

Later, I saw her at the check- out with a turkey in one hand, a handful of turkey bucks in the other hand and a huge smile on her face. 

Oh, how delicious was that turkey I never ate. When we look for creative ways to help others, we serve the Christ. 

 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40)
