If you are like my wife, then you woke up this morning around 2am, braved the cold weather and long lines, and entered a slew of department stores to find the most valuable items and the cheapest prices. Along the way, you may have boxed out a senior citizen to get the last water hose storage container, stepped over a fallen customer to scoop up a digital camera, or haggled with a kid over one of the last remaining DVD box sets of Jake and The Neverland Pirates (shout out to TV editor, and my best friend, Brad Rozman).
Congratulations. And good job on the loot in your car trunk. I hope it blesses your family and your checkbook come Christmas time.
I want to remind readers of seven amazing spiritual deals that God has made available on Black Friday, as well as on every other day of the year:
- For all the promises of God find their Yes in him (Jesus Christ). That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. 2 Corinthians 1:20
- Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29
- “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33.
- For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. Romans 1:16
- For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
- If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
- For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
