The “Barter Kings” think they have something new and exciting. Nope!! I remember in my old Youth Ministry days we had some great times leading the kids through a “Bigger and Better Hunt”–where you start off with an egg, trade up until the group with the most expensive (large) item wins. This can be hilarious. One group came back with a hot water heater. Another, a VW body!
How wonderful it would be, to trade our problems for something a little less trying. Some would trade a messy relationship for an unpaid bill, a wayward child for a car problem, someone’s addiction for a toothache. Maybe that’s why when we share our sorrows with others that suffer, we don’t feel so alone.
