A number of years ago my father-in-law worked for a retail store. One thing a business hates is merchandise that doesn’t move off the shelves. He said that a sure fire way to get rid of such merchandise was to put a sale sign on it, often at an increased price, and place a limit of four articles per person. It was almost humorous to see people stocking up on something they really didn’t need, and if they wanted to buy more, well, “I guess we could bend the rules this time.” It seems that most people can’t pass up a bargain, especially if they think that they can’t get it in abundance. That seems to just be just human nature.
The churches of our community have something to offer that has a limitless supply. We don’t have to raise the price because it is free to anyone who will accept it. It has already been paid for. There is no need to place a limit on how much you can buy because you will receive all that you need when you accept it. With this offer a person can experience a positive change in life now, with new peace and joy in abundance every day. It even includes the promise that eternal life is waiting for all who will accept it. You can’t get that offer anywhere else.
This is an offer that sounds too good to be true. But don’t be afraid of it. You can call on any of our churches and they will help you get the best deal you can find anywhere in your entire lifetime. Don’t pass up this great offer. Remember, it’s free!
