What We Will Do For Free Food!

Three "cows"! Oh, what we will do for free food!

"If we dress like a cow, we will get free chicken!"

Are you kidding me?

While some might say, "Are you kidding me? You think I am going to dress like a cow just for some free chicken?!"

I said, "Are you kidding me? All we have to do for some free chicken is dress like a cow?! Lets go!"

Chick-fil-A does this once a year. And all I have to say is:
Well done Chick-fil-A! What is my dignity compared to a free meal!

I think Chick-fil-A is a great company. They have good food for fast food. Their waffle fries are heavenly. They started in Georgia so they completely rock at Sweet Tea. They are always clean. And when you ask for anything their employees answer, "It is my pleasure!"

So when there was a chance at free food.....no brainer! Where are my spots and my ears?

And if you don't think it can get any better than a free meal, try this! You can go to as many Chick-fil-A's in a day as you can get to. So we hit one at Noon, then did some errands, and hit a different one about 3:00. My little slip of a ten-year-old ate 24 nuggets yesterday!

What is pride compared to 24 nuggets in one day!

But as I drove down the road, with my cow ears flapping, I thought about what Jesus said:
And Jesus said unto them, "I am the bread of life: he that comes to Me shall never hunger"  John 6:35
As I looked down at my cow spots adorning my clothes, it occurred to me again how amazing God is. He doesn't require us to dress up, or get ourselves together, or change our ways, or fix ourselves up, or pretend we are something we are not.

He wants us to come to Him NOW! Just as we are.

And then Jesus offers us the free-est of free meals!

He offers us Himself!
He will fill us.
He will change us.
He will fix us.
He will even dress us!

And all because of Who He is, not because of who we try to be.

Chick-fil-A's meal was great for a day. We sure were full after we ate there, and we appreciated a Company with generosity and a sense of humor!

But today we are hungry again.

But Jesus is the Bread of Life! He is free!
And when we partake of Him, we never hunger again!
