It’s amazing stuff, styrofoam.
Keeps cold things cold and hot things hot. Practically lighter than air, but oh, so effective!
Why can’t every aspect of life be like that? Would’nt it be great if things could work so well and yet be so simple. And cheap. At Wal-Mart, I got a pack of 50 for 88 cents. I was reading a Bible scripture the other day about how if a person was to just give someone a cup of water in the name of Jesus, God would give that person a pat on the back. Imagine that. A simple styrofoam cup worth one fiftieth of 88 cents….whatever that is….you do the math. A cup of water given for the right reason, and bingo! You get a prize from God. I don’t know, maybe I’m missing something. Read the scripture yourself in Mark 9:41.
The value of most things is not found in what they cost us but what they mean to the receiver.
I mean, I wish I could send millions of $ to the folks in Alabama, Missisippi and Louisiana to help clean up the mess of the hurricane. Truth is, I don’t have millions. But I can send up a prayer and I can mail a few dollars. Maybe someone needs some fresh water to drink…..and a styrofoam cup. I guess I can do that.
Whether God rewards me or not, it just seems like a good thing to do. If plain old styrofoam can have purpose and function in such a simple way, then I guess I can too.
