YARD-SALE GRACE

The Yadkinville Church of Christ had a yard sale. Well, it was actually a storage room giveaway. Dennis Conner said, "We didn’t really sell anything. We had so much stuff that it took up too much space. Also, we wanted to reach out to the community. As people came up we told them, 'Everything is free! Take as much home as you can. We want you to have it.' People responded in curious ways. Many were noticeably uncomfortable. Some didn't come, thinking there was a catch. Others refused to leave without paying. Others, after much convincing, finally took the stuff to their cars, not believing their good fortune."

And I thought to myself, "That’s pretty much the way people are about God’s grace." We insist on paying or working for it.
