Heaven’s Grocery Store
I was walking along the highway some time ago, when I arrived to a beautiful place called Heaven’s Grocery Store. “Interesting” I said. “I think I will take a look inside”. When I came to the doors, it opened wide. To my surprise, there were angels everywhere! One handed me a basket and said, “shop with care”. Everything a Christian needed was there. I marched down the aisles grabbing bags of love, cases of joy, cans of peace, liters of long suffering, pounds of kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control, all the fruits of the Spirit. I came to a section where a sign read “free, take one”. Looking at what it was, it was salvation. My basket was getting full, when an angel whispered to me saying “this is a 24/7 store. If you get low, our stock is unlimited so you could always come back for more”. I came up to the register to be checked out and asked the angel behind the register, “how much do I owe”? Without looking at me he just said “take them everywhere you go”. I laughed and again I said “how much do I owe”? He looked at me with a smile and said, “my child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago”.
