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”.
