Have you waited in line at a movie theater concession stand only to be stunned by the prices of snacks and drinks? One Michigan man has had enough! He filed a class action lawsuit against his local theater protesting the overpriced refreshments. In the lawsuit, the man said he paid $8 for a Coke and a box of Goobers, which is three times what the items cost at nearby stores.
While I don’t drink Cokes and I’m not a fan of Goobers, I do feel like I am headed to the poor house every time I buy a box of popcorn at the movies. However, we all know the best things in life are not cheap, and we must admit, it doesn’t get much better than buttered popcorn at the theatre.
However, the VERY BEST thing in life is FREE and I mean totally free. The Bible says, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the ‘free’ gift of God.”
And that word “free” means just that. God offers us forgiveness and eternal life absolutely free. Now that’s something to chew on!
