Two for One

When the weekly ad for our favorite supermarket comes, I scan it for the red letters, Buy One, Get One Free.

Obviously, when we were feeding three teenagers, this was a great way to stretch a food budget for a family of five.

Now, with just three of us, most of those bargains are not worth it, as the food would spoil before we could eat it.

So, why do I still look for those big red letters every week? For the needy. Since we can afford regular prices, one item is for us and the free item goes to a food bank Sometimes both or all of the items go to the food bank.

John the Baptist said it best: “The man with TWO tunics should share with him who has none, and the one who has food should do the same.” (emphasis mine – Luke 3:11 NIV)
