Now that Black Friday is behind us, let us reflect on all that transpired. Two or three weeks before, the TV bombarded us with all kinds of specials. The newspapers were full of advertisements, coupons, special prices, discounts, buy one get one free, etc.
By some reports, people camped out as long as two or three days before Black Friday. Other people stood in line for several hours in cold weather, waiting to get those so-called bargains. In some cases thousands of people waited in line to get a certain item even though the ad stated three or four items per store. The odds are not very good.
Let me tell you about another Black Friday. This one I guarantee you will not need to camp out or stand in cold weather. It will not cost you a penny and the merchandise has a lifetime warranty. On this particular Friday, people turned out in great numbers to watch what was happening. They took a man and beat Him till the flesh pulled from His bones. They nailed him on a cross where He died. To make sure He was dead, they plunged a spear into his side. They then buried Him in a tomb. However, three days later, He arose from the grave and walked among the people. Some saw Him but did not believe.
If you want to know more about this Black Friday, go to your local church or synagogue. To be politically correct, we call it Good Friday. It will cost you nothing, and you could receive eternal life.
