Black Friday

So today is Black Friday which is America's biggest shopping day. Although with people camping out in tents outside stores on Thursday it may one day be called Black Thursday & Friday. Many people waited for several hours just to get their hands on the best deals. Most were waiting to buy big screen TV's, laptops, gaming consoles, tablets, cell phones, and drones those were this year's hottest items on for sale today.

Now let me ask you something. Is any of these things worth trampling someone over for?? Are they worth physically fighting with someone for?? Are they worth killing for? Are they worth you possibly being trampled or sent to the hospital or dying for? People seem to turn into violent senseless zombie animals on Black Fridays. Here are some video links of some of today's Black Friday chaos. (All videos not mine I found them all on YouTube.)

Now is it worth?? Is any of that really worth it when you can buy the same thing for the same deal on the internet. Cyber Monday is coming up and most sites now also do Black Friday. So why be trampled when you can buy the same thing online??

So instead of going out and getting hurt or killed please do all your Black Friday shopping online it's much safer. Ya, the site may freeze or crash but I'd rather deal with that then be trampled on.


Still, it's a real shame that on the night and day after we are supposed to be thankful we are going out and buying things we just don't need. Doesn't anyone in this country remember how to be thankful anymore?? Or how to behave like decent human beings?? Why do we waste our time buying finite things?? Whatever you buy won't last forever.

What makes me the most upset is I don't see people running and crowding to hear the Gospel the same way they do for Black Friday sales. Never see people camping in tents on Saturday nights outside Churches with people excited and can't wait for Sunday morning services. Where is our excitement for the Gospel??

I want to see people camped out for Sunday morning Church services. I want to see people running into Church with pure excitement to hear the Gospel. I want to see people truly thankful for the Gospel that has been given to us. Do none of us get that GOD has given us forgiveness, mercy, grace, a relationship with Him for free that we don't deserve that we can't earn?? Do none of us get the fact that GOD sent His only begotten Son to die for us His enemies we wanted to kill Him yet He died for us. We are merely a tiny speck in the great fantastic universe yet GOD loves us and has provided us a way to have a relationship with Him do we not understand that?? Do we not understand that those in other countries are dying for what we are taking for granted?? We take the Bible and Church for granted like it's always gonna be there don't have to worry about being killed for carrying a Bible or wearing a cross. You know someday we might not be so religiously liberated and it's only by the grace and mercy of GOD that we even have what religious freedoms we have today and we all need to get on our knees and thank GOD for our freedoms, His mercy, His forgiveness, His grace, His Gospel, our relationship with Him, the Bible, Church, and so many other things rather than spend that time waiting and wasting hours in some line to buy something that we don't need that won't last forever.

Again I ask where is our excitement for the Gospel?? Where is our hunger for the Gospel?? Where is our thrill for the Gospel?? Why do take the Gospel something so wonderful, so pure, so Holy, so life changing, so life-altering, such a miracle for granted??

GOD didn't have to send His Son He chose to.

Jesus didn't have to die for us He chose to.

GOD didn't have to give us the Bible or Church He chose to.

GOD doesn't have to love us He chooses to.

GOD doesn't have to give us forgiveness, mercy, grace, and so many other things He chooses to.

GOD didn't have to give us the Gospel He chose to.

GOD doesn't have to have a relationship with us He chooses to.

It doesn't make any sense to me why we are not excited more about the Gospel. I hope one day I see people as excited about the Gospel as they are about Black Friday. I hope one day I see people camped out on Saturday nights in excitement and anticipation of Church services Sunday morning. I hope one day I see crowds of people rushing into Church like they do for Black Friday sales.
