What do we need? Apparently, we need a lot of stuff by watching all the people get up in the middle of the night or camp out for days at a time. Deals to be had for Christmas gifts and things for themselves at bargain prices seem to be the motivation.
Millions of us watch what seems to be extraordinary behavior. How do people wait in these lines with patience at 5:00 a.m.? What motivates people? It is obvious the retail industry has it figured out.
I believe there are some valuable lessons to be learned about Black Friday. What can we do to be motivated toward pursuing Christ in such a manner? How can we stir the hearts of others to be motivated to go through so many different obstacles?
I don’t know all the answers but I believe we do have some important lessons to learn from merchants all across America.
