Proverbs 1:13 (MSG)
We'll load up on top-quality loot. We'll haul it home by the truckload.
How timely this verse is seeing that it is the last Saturday before Christmas!
Webster's Dictionary defines the word loot as: goods of significant value usually taken during time of war. Does it feel like a battle out there today? If you've been out @ the shopping centers in the past hour searching for that perfect gift, then you might feel like you've done a tour of duty!! Take heart...the reason for the frenzied activity is a good one! You just want for the special people in your life to know just HOW special they are. My prayer today is that each member of my family would sense the depth of love I have for them and further still, the depth of love that God has for them in that He gave the most excellent gift of His Son.
