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,โ€ says the Lord. โ€œThough 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Oh, do I ever know what you are talking about, Matt! One tiny corner, that isnโ€™t completely sealed, is all it takes. Like you said, itโ€™s the same way with sin in our lives. Great thought, brother!

      1. Iโ€™m barely allowed in the kitchen, especially to cook. I tend to dirty all the pots and pans at once. My wife often says, โ€œItโ€™s ok, Iโ€™ll cook for you.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  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 ๐Ÿ”ฅ and I closed the lid too tightly. I had to discard and purchase lunch. ๐Ÿ˜’

  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.
