A German man put his luxurious 20-foot yacht up for sale on an online auction site, hoping to get at least $18,500 for it. He made one minor mistake: He forgot to set a minimum bid. In the end, the yacht was sold for $34.65. Ouch!
John 3:16 - "For God loved the world in this
way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him
will not perish but have eternal life."
That yacht was sold
cheap. However, we are not. The cost of buying us back from the "slave
market" was a very high price. It was the price of the death of God's
Son. I for one don't want to take it for granted.
Still, we often
look at our fellow-man as being cheap. Don't we know that they are
bought with that price - if they will except it. God didn't set a
minimum bid - He set the ultimate bid. So, when you come in contact with
others today - consider their worth. And treat them that way.
