Anyway, the thought occurred to me that actually, I already have that job. I have good news! You've won absolution from your sins and eternal life in a wonderful place called Heaven with a wonderful person called Jesus. He is not only a great friend, He knows you inside and out, good tries and bad thoughts, and he loves you dearly. You've won this through no doing of your own; Jesus just wanted to give you this prize because He's good like that.
When we were handing out free cookies at the Grace Presbyterian booth at Spring Fling, many people would shake their heads no, they didn't want a cookie. Now, maybe they didn't really, but maybe some of them did and they were just skeptical, thought surely there were strings attached. Would we try to sell them something? No, we gave out cookies like God gives out His goodness...just because we care, just because it's a joy to bring joy to people.
