A Better Deal

A few weeks ago, while I’m working out to Shaun T’s Insanity video, my feet are hurting—likely because it’s time for a new pair of shoes. 

So, I find a pair of sneakers on The regular price is $100.00. They’re on sale for $69.00. When I find an online coupon, I end up ordering the shoes for $59.00—with free shipping. 


The day after I receive the shoes in the mail, while my daughter and I are shopping, we stop at Foot Locker. 

In Foot Locker, I see the exact same shoes I just ordered the day before. 

When I see the price, I exclaim, “You’ve got to be kidding me!” 

Foot Locker has the same shoes on sale for $29.00! 

What do I do then? 

I buy the shoes at Foot Locker, and then send the other ones back to Nike. 

Little did I know, when I had been looking for shoes online, a better deal was available for me at Foot Locker. 

Just as Foot Locker had something better for me, so also God has something better for you. God has a better possibility, a better position, a better prospect for you.
