Story Time- Dumb Lids

Some of you read my story about buying a slow cooker, a really really slow cooker. I have been using said really really slow cooker and bringing my lunch to school. The other day I learned a valuable lesson about plastic containers that I thought I should pass along to help you avoid the same mistake.

There is a fatal flaw in the design of such containers. Evidently one has to snap the lid down. If it has the slightest crack, it will leak.

How did I discover this fatal flaw that I pass on to you as a cautionary tale? I am glad you asked.

It just so happened the other day that as I held the container slightly at a tilt, juices leaked on the floor. There was a trail of juices on the tile floor in my classroom. Fortunately, no one was around to witness. It was at this time that I was ever so thankful for that marvelous invention called paper towels. It may have taken about twenty to clean up the mess.

The floor looked fine after I wiped it all up and no one could have noticed.

I am grateful that Jesus cleans us up from our sins. Isaiah 1:18 says:

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”

If we come to Jesus, he cleanses us from our sins.

Stay tuned for future wisdom regarding cooking. I am glad to share my experiences 🙂 lol

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Oh, do I ever know what you are talking about, Matt! One tiny corner, that isn’t completely sealed, is all it takes. Like you said, it’s the same way with sin in our lives. Great thought, brother!

      1. I’m barely allowed in the kitchen, especially to cook. I tend to dirty all the pots and pans at once. My wife often says, “It’s ok, I’ll cook for you.” 😀

  2. Amen. I am glad that Jesus cleans up our messes. The glass container that I used for my lunch exploded in my lunch bag on Friday. Apparently, the food was too hot 🔥 and I closed the lid too tightly. I had to discard and purchase lunch. 😒

  3. Matt, you take life’s simple mishaps and turn them into a lesson with Jesus. As your blog proclaims, “Jesus luvs all.” I have discovered that the Ziplock lid can crack after a few hundred uses.
