My husband got tired of hearing the kids holler for a towel every time they got out of the tub. He came up with a great solution. Being a full time college student, house cleaner, and mother, I didn’t always have the towels put up. They were clean, but not in their rightful places. To put a stop to “Towel!” he made a sign. In all caps, my husband wrote: GET TOWEL on a sheet of posterboard and taped it to the outside of the bathroom door. He was sure this would work.
Next night, my son quietly opened the bathroom door and stuck his wet head out. I knew immediately…”you need a towel.” “Yep” came the reply. How soon are we removed from the signs and words we read everyday. The Bible says we are like one who looks into a mirror and forgets what manner of man he is. How many times do I read God’s Word and forget what I just read, only a few minutes ago. Am I running on auto-pilot?
I hope that I can read and feast on God’s Word and pay attention! I also hope my kids will get the hang of getting a towel BEFORE going into the bathroom-you’d think we’d learn!
