Free taste so much better...Oh Taste and See....
So after an amazing work out today, the best idea I could come up with was to go and get some McDonalds....good idea huh? I didn't really have the money to get fast food, knew I needed to go on home and find something to cook, but it's $1.99 happy meal Tuesday, can you beat that? Anyway, as I got up to pay, the workers were very flustered by someone pulling out of line after they ordered and messing up the whole system. So I was given my food and told it was on the house! FREE FOOD IS SO MUCH BETTER!
I am driving along thinking "Man, these are the best fries ever." Then thinking to myself "Are they really that good, or is it that they are free?"..then just like God, in the middle of my very unhealthy, yet free lunch, He spoke to me. "Oh Taste and see that the Lord is good..." His love is Free. His Mercy is Free. His Forgiveness is Free. Like to many, I came to him, ready to pay, ready to give some sort of payment for the cost of my life. But I was given my eternal life and told "It's on me." It's Free!
And oh how much sweeter is the Lord when we truly grasp the gift of God? That we say "Taste and see that the Lord is good"... Free is so much better.
