This weeks's Five Minute Friday writing prompt - Gift
With Easter fast approaching, I can't help but think of the word gift in terms of Jesus' death and resurrection. Talk about a gift. I mean, who else would die for me? Would I be willing to die for anyone else? Would I be willing to take on everyone else's sins, past, present and future and then be humiliated, tortured and killed slowly?
I am humbled by my arrogance in accepting this as a matter of course most days. Our Savior died a horrible death ... for me. And I don't even apprcieate it most of the time let alone actually stop and think about it.
I've been given the ultimate gift of love. How often do I say thank you? How often do I tell anyone else how they can have the gift too?
I am thankful to have been forced to stop and think today. I am humbled that He thought I was worth saving, because, really, I'm not. And that's what makes the gift so valuable.
