Free Gift

Every summer our town has an event called “Crazy Days.” Merchants in town sell things at lower prices than normal. Sometimes people can find real bargains at Crazy Days.
This year I went shopping on Crazy Days. People sold summer items to make room for fall and winter merchandise. One of the local grocery stores even had a free breakfast in the park. That was a nice thing to do, and many people appreciated the free food.
Our short Bible Reading today tells us that God has given us something much better than a free breakfast. He has given us the free gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus. What is so special about God’s gift? God sent Jesus to die for us so we can have the promise of eternal life with Him. Through Jesus’ death, our sins have been forgiven.
Jesus is God’s most precious gift to us. I hope that you believe in Him and are willing to follow and obey Him.
