My wife and I are huge yard sale fans, finding bargains and all kinds of treasures forgotten. The other day we found an old buffet, it was in great shape without any missing pieces but was lacking a glossy finish. We ended up settling on a reasonable price and took our new find home. Wiping off a layer of dust we realized that we loved the light color and opted not to stain it, just seal it. As we slowly wiped the clear finish on we noticed a lot of really cool wood grain patterns showing up. After it was all said and done it looked absolutely stunning, like it had just come out of the store. We took something that was old and dingy, caring for it and showing it love, and now it will stand out for years to come. The same thing happens when we start walking with God, He takes our old sinful ways and makes us new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the old has gone, the new is here!
