A Sweet Treat
Read: Romans 5:6-11
"Hey, Ashley, guess what I have!" Andy approached his sister with his hands behind his back. "I'll give you a hint. It's round and has a hole in the middle."
"A donut," Ashley said.
"Nope," Andy said. "But you can eat it. It's hard and sweet and comes in several flavors."
Ashley scrunched up her forehead. "Uhhh . . . "
"Here's a couple more hints," Andy continued. "And if you don't guess it this time, you don't get any. They come in a roll, and when our grandparents were kids they cost a nickel."
"Nothing costs a nickel," Ashley replied.
"They're about the size of a nickel too," Andy added, grinning. "Give up?"
Ashley shrugged. "Might as well."
"Life Savers!" Andy spouted with glee. "And now I get to have them all."
"Aw, come on, Andy. Can't I just have one? A cherry one? Pleeease?"
Andy laughed, then unwrapped the roll and let Ashley pick out one of the cherry candies. Ashley popped it into her mouth. "Mmmm."
"These candies have been around for a hundred years!" said Andy.
"How do you know so much about Life Savers?" Ashley asked.
"From the internet, of course," Andy said. "Did you know they got their name from those floating rings you toss into the water if someone goes overboard? The way they're shaped makes them look like tiny life preservers, or life savers.
"Oh yeah, you're right." Ashley took another red candy from the roll. "Who knew saving lives could taste so sweet?"
"I did--and so did you!" Andy laughed at his sister's confused expression. "Remember? What we talked about in church last week?"
"Oh, that's right," said Ashley. "We talked about how sweet it is to know Jesus because He saves lives!"
Andy nodded. "We couldn't save ourselves from sin, but Jesus died to take the punishment we deserve so we could be saved and have eternal life." He popped a green candy into his mouth. "Knowing Him is sweeter than anything else!" Lucinda J. Rollings
HOW ABOUT YOU?

If you don’t know Him as your Savior, enjoy the sweet life today by putting your trust in Him. (To learn more, click the "Good News!" button in the right column of this page.)
