Are you ready for the sales?
Every year, there seem to be incentives by many advertisers for us to buy their items on Boxing Day. We line up to get their bargains, join the rush, and hopefully, come out with good deals.
In the midst of the mayhem, let’s remember our manners. Yes, there may be things on sale, but it’s important to treat others with respect. In other words, let’s not push ourselves through the crowds, drive erratically, or come away with a negative attitude just because we didn’t get what we wanted.
As believers in Christ, we can act differently, and the things of this world do not have to lead us astray from following Jesus of Nazareth. So, today, let’s enjoy the day, look for bargains, and join in the fun of shopping, while being mindful of treating others the way we ourselves would want to be treated.
Be blessed on this day!
Lord Jesus, thank you, that on this day we can be followers of you while we live in this world, and we can have fun looking for bargains, as we intermingle with other shoppers. Amen.
