A man put this sign in front of his auto repair shop: “Beware of bargains in life rafts, brain surgery, parachutes, and auto repairs.” There are truly some points in life at which bargains are no good. When cultists came calling on a man in one village, he said, “Come in. You’re offering me a better deal than I’m getting up there at the church!” We must go beyond that which looks good to find real value, to find the truth, to find God’s truth!

-Michael Shannon, Preaching September/October 2003
