Greatest Deal in History

I was working on a Bible study this morning and came across an arrangement that seemed too good to believe. 

I thought it was a big deal, but my research told me otherwise.  

There was the 1983 comedy with Chevy about arms dealers.

This deal is much bigger than that.

There was the 1987 book by Steve Coll about the break up of AT&T.

This deal is much bigger than that.

There was an add for a super-de-duper battery-powered drill set in England.

This deal is much bigger than that.

There was a graphic for a price break of almost half off.

This deal is much bigger than that.

There was an image of the feeling that started to come over me the longer I thought about it.

This deal is much bigger than that.

This deal deserves way more celebration than a movie or book release, more than a good price on a special purchase, more than a sky full of fireworks.

This deal is set down in God's infallible Word,

This deal is offered and secured by Jesus the Christ.

This deal is based on personal decisions leading from the heart.

This deal is met with endless grief or rejoicing in this life and the next.

This deal is simple and straight forward:
1. Judge and condemn others to find myself judged and condemned.
2. Forgive and give to others to find myself forgiven and receiving an overflow of blessings.

Which are you choosing today?

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned, Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.  Luke 6:36-37
