I received this story in an e-mail, so I am not sure of the original source.
A little boy purchased a model sailboat. He was so excited about building the boat. He diligently constructed the boat and was ready to test it on the water. He walked down the the lake to sail his boat. As soon as he placed the boat into the water the wind took the boat all the way across the large lake. The boy tried to walk to the other side to find the boat but night fell so he decided to return the next day to find the boat. Early the next morning the boy returned to the lake only to find the boat missing. He looked all around the lake but could not find his boat. Sad, he started the walk home. As he walked he passed a hobby shop. The boy looked in the window and to his surprise he saw his sailboat. He approached the owner of the store and explained that the sailboat was his. The owner stated that he just bought the boat from a gentleman and that he could not just give the boat to the boy. The boy was sad but more determined than ever. He ran home and scrapped up enough money to buy his boat. He went back to the hobby shop and bought the boat. Walking home and clutching his boat tight whispered to the boat, "Now your mine twice, I made you and now I bought you".
The Lord Jesus Christ is whispering to us the same thing. He made us and He has purchased us with his Blood.
