Ephesians 5:2-4 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
One aspect of being a Christian is a responsibility to the one who redeemed us. When I think of the word redeem, I think back on those Green Back Stamps mom would get at the Piggly Wiggly (down the street from George I. Pair). You would collect those stamps and then, when you had a lot of them, you could redeem an item from the Green Back Stamp Catalog.

And that is my life. I have been purchased for a price, and my body is no longer my own. So how am I to act? Sure, it's a work in progress that will never be complete, but that's were my Joy comes from.

Your conversation tonight with the kids before bed - "yes, honey, I was redeemed at the Piggly Wiggly". Good stuff.
