What A Bargain! – Beloved Women – August 17, 2020
READ: “Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy, and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” (Isaiah 55:1 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: I love a bargain, one that feels so good it’s like I’m getting away with the unthinkable. A bargain so good; I wonder if someone made a mistake when they wrote the price. I once found a dress that retailed for $75.00 selling for $3.41 at a major retailer. Yes, you read that right. I bought that dress in a heartbeat and whenever I received a compliment while wearing this dress, I eagerly shared my glee about how much I paid.
When I read today’s text, there’s an even bigger bargain than what I found. All who are hungry and thirsty can buy what they need with no money and at no cost. It’s available in abundance. This verse is an invitation for us to come to Him; to know Him; to taste and see that He is good. Nothing is required of us but willing hearts, since what He offers us is priceless. What a bargain! Being the recipient of this bargain makes me shout with joy.
PRAY: Dear Lord, turn our eyes and our hearts toward You; the only One who satisfies us with Your priceless gift to us. Help us to remember it is only You that satisfies; only You that can feed our hungry souls. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
REFLECT: How do you share what God has given you with others?
