The Real Deal is . . . My child, stay home from church today, rest and spend the time with Me. My child, give $_____ to the home for pregnant teenagers even though you already have tithed this week. My child, go ahead and be open about the pain and eventual victory you have had in your marriage.
My Deal is . . . Lord, okay, but you know that I am going to look like an uncommitted Christian if I miss church today. Lord, um, did you check my account balance before you said that? Lord, how much do I share about my rocky road and how far do I go?
His Deal is . . . His Word. He will never leave you or forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6. He cares more about you than the birds in the sky that He provides for everyday. Luke 12:24. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Philippians 4:13.
Shed legalism and grow a thick coat of wisdom and love. Live sacrificially and gain treasures in heaven. Be transparent and gain souls for the kingdom. His Deal is the Real Deal.
