A Double Tub


Not many people know about the “old days” of the double tub. It was a wringer built between two wash tubs and on the advertisement I have, the price was $4.71. You cannot even buy washing powder for that today, much less a washing machine.

Have you ever gone into a fitting room and after trying on some clothes feel like you were a “double tub?” You know. You have been living too much off the “fat of the land.” You forget about shopping for a while and start talking “Diet Plan.”

Have you looked into the mirror of God, His Word? Have you noticed how you cannot fit into what God wants you to “put on” (Colossians 3:9-15), because you are living off “the fat of the land?” You know. You have bitten off more than you can chew. Your pride has taken the place of your humility. You have swallowed all your “portion of goods” (Luke 15:12) and the weight of the world keeps piling on.

Ask God to help you stick to your guns and help you obtain a taste for the “bread of life” (John 6:48-51). Learn to bite your tongue when you want more of the world than you do His righteousness (Matthew 5:6). Eat some humble pie (James 4:10). Lose some of that weight by looking unto Jesus (Hebrews 12:1,2). Allow God to mold you into the “new man” He created “after the righteousness and holiness of truth” (Ephesians 4:22-24).
