The Boat in the Window


A young boy spent many hours building a little sailboat, crafting it
down to the finest detail. He then took it to a nearby river to sail
it. When he put it in the water, however, it moved away from him very
quickly. Though he chased it along the bank, he couldn't keep up with
it. The strong wind and current carried the boat away. The
heartbroken boy knew how hard he would have to work to build another
sailboat.

Farther down the river, a man found the little boat, took it to town,
and sold it to a shopkeeper. Later that day, as the boy was walking
through town, he noticed the boat in a store window.

Entering the store, he told the owner that the boat belonged to him.
It had his own little marks on it, but he couldn't prove to the
shopkeeper that the boat was his. The man told him the only way he
could get the boat was to buy it. The boy wanted it back so badly
that he did exactly that.

As he took the boat from the hand of the shopkeeper, he looked at it
and said, "Little boat, you're twice mine. I made you and I bought
you."

In the same way, we belong twice to Someone. He both created us and
paid a great price for us. With the blood of His Son, we have been
redeemed and reunited with Him. His Son gave His life to get us back,
yet so often we show such little gratitude for what He has done for
us.
