Warren asks: "If you sacrificed everything you had to buy me a priceless and personalized gift and I never took the time to unwrap it and open it, how would you feel?"
Oh how often I forget that God's grace and salvation is a gift for me ... just there for the taking! How it must sadden God when we ignore the gift He has given us and focus on meaningless substitutions for fulfillment. Why do I focus on stuff that will likely not matter next week, let alone forever?
