The Grocery Store Disaster & The Quest For Our Souls

Imagine that you went into a huge grocery store, while walking down the aisle, you see a bottle of ketchup on the shelf, clumsy you broke the bottle while reading the label. Frantic to salvage the situation, you knock down the whole shelf.

The store owner is livid. Calls security on you and insists you pay damages or get imprisoned. Suddenly, an amazing gentleman walks in, calms the store owner, and pays a heavy sum. In fact, he buys the store off him, buys the mall the store is situated in and gives all the business owners in the mall more money than they’d have ever made had they continued running their businesses for the rest of their lives.

He now instructs you to oversee all those businesses for him while he travels. He intends to return but doesn’t say exactly when. If by mistake, you knock down a bottle of ketchup or make any mess, you’re to give him a phone call immediately after this happens, you’re to apologize and he’d forgive you.

Should you then begin strutting all over the store knocking down bottles of ketchup? Should you begin pushing down shelves and destroying the stores? Should you now set the mall ablaze simply because it has been fully paid for? Are you mad, dear?

“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”
‭‭- (‭‭Paul. Romans‬ ‭6:1‬ ‭KJV)

Have a splendid week.
