Do we want the stuff we own to work? Why of course we do. A $10.00 watch tells time as well as a $200.00 exercise motivator time-piece. Why then do we buy the more expensive? Does the casual passerby know that our handbag is a Prada or a Wal-Mart? Probably not… unless we tell them.
As Mark Twain once said, “Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she had laid an asteroid.”
Our evaluation of things is skewed. We’ve taught ourselves that more money equals better product. Not so.
Maybe that is why some still deny the Christ. He doesn’t charge an arm and a leg. In fact Jesus gave his life freely for no other reason than that he loves us. He freely offers us forgiveness of sin and eternal life. Then he gives us the Holy Spirit to live in us.
And we say: “Doesn’t cost enough… must not be worth much.”
He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. (Revelation 21:6, NIV)
Prayer – Lord, forgive us for undervaluing your gift to us, the most priceless gift we will ever know. Amen
