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 buy washing powder for that today, much less the style of 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’ve 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. Your lifestyle has overstepped your budget. Your pride has taken the place of humility. You have swallowed all your “portion of goods” (Luke 15:12), and the wight of the world grows and chokes out the word (Luke 8:14).

Ask God to forgive you and give you the 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 tat weight by looking unto Jesus (Hebrews 12:1,2).
