Our Trick, God’s Treat

A sweet message to share with pint-size doorbellers on Halloween

It was really quite neat
that you asked for a treat
when you stopped by
and rang our doorbell.
Though we don’t know your name
we are still glad you came
and would like to pass this on as well.

Long before time began,
Father God had a plan
for His people to all get along.
But we blew it, you see,
when we chose selfishly
to insist on OUR WAY and do wrong.

What we did was a trick
that made God really sick.
But He didn’t trick us in return.
He reached out with a treat
that is sweeter than sweet.
It’s a treat that we never could earn.

God says, “I’ll be your friend!
I’ll forgive all your sin.
I sent Jesus to make you brand new.
On this Halloween night
as you turn out your light,
just remember how much I love you!”
