Throwing In More Towels
This morning I went to Target and discovered that the Dollar Spot items with a yellow circle on the tag are 70% off. The sign still read 50% off but when I took an item and scanned it I found it rang up at 30 cents.
The only items our Target had that were Operation Christmas Child shoebox-worthy were these hand towels. I got 92 of them. I guess towels must be the OCC "item of the week" for me.
Seeing all these towels gets me thinking about the Bible account of Jesus washing the disciples' feet. I think of all the disciples who never really considered the idea of taking on the role of a servant and washing feet. I think if Jesus had flat out told them to do it, they might have obeyed. But they didn't think of it on their own. How many service opportunities do I miss every day because I just don't notice them? God, give me Your eyes to see.
Then there was Peter who was too proud to be served by Jesus. He wanted to be self-sufficient. Oh, and that's me, too. Lord, help me to see my need and accept the help, because no matter what I think, I need it desperately...
or I'll be throwing in that towel.
