Just in time for Mother’s Day weekend, we have a winner for the Splurge a Little Giveaway! That lucky winner is Juanita! Congrats, Juanita! I’ll get the gift card to you as soon as possible. Have fun splurging on a little something at Pier 1!
For the rest of us, let’s take joy in the fact that God himself has splurged on us big-time. He sent his son Jesus into the world to save us from our sins and give us eternal life. And that love was so great that “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) Yes, the biggest splurge of all time!
Since God has so freely splurged on us, why don’t we share that love with some splurges of our own? Maybe we can give an unexpected gift or pay a surprise visit. Maybe we can offer a helping hand. Or maybe it’s time to give forgiveness or extend the hand of friendship. Whatever it is, let’s splurge a little—no, make that a lot!
“. . . love one another deeply, from the heart.” 1 Peter 1:22b
