The other day, a telephone solicitor called and offered me a free $200 gift certificate if I would agree to come to a seminar about time-shares. I refused (trying to be polite), but felt a little annoyed – mostly with myself!  Whenever someone offers to give me something “for free,” feelings of skepticism arise. I was taught, like so many other children, that everything has a hidden price tag and not to trust such offers.  I wish this wasn’t so. When I am on the other side and want to give something without expectations, I hate being turned down or looked at with suspicion. This must be how God feels, desiring to give us an abundance of love, for free,  but being constantly  turned away with little thought or care. We simply can’t believe it when something is too good to be true.
