God Sent Us A Savior
If our greatest need had been information,
God would have sent us an educator
If our greatest need had been technology,
God would have sent us a scientist
If our greatest need had been money,
God would have sent us an economist
If our greatest need had been pleasure,
God would have sent us an entertainer
But our greatest need was forgiveness,
So God sent us a Savior
The candy maker made the candy in the form of a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus, who came to earth as our Savior. It could also represent the staff of the "Good Shepherd" with which He reaches down into the ditches of the world to lift out the fallen lambs who, like all sheep, have gone astray. Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candymaker stained it with red stripes. He used three small stripes to show the stripes of the scourging Jesus received by which we are healed. The large red stripe was for the blood shed by Christ on the cross so that we could have the promise of eternal life.
Some people believe this story of the candy cane is only a legend. Others believe it really happened this way. We do not know for sure exactly how the candy cane was invented, or earned its stripes, but one thing is certain... it is an excellent picture of Christ and His GREAT love for you.
