Don’t Hoard Your Goods

March 22, 2019: Ecclesiastes 11, 12; 1 Kings 11; Psalms 73.

I’ve searched “Goodwill,” the “Bargain Box,” and “Stuff” for years. I wanted a Tupperware half-gallon “Ice Cream Keeper.” (They are no longer available. It’s too bad because they make the ice cream last twice as long.)

Unfortunately, the lid to mine got washed on the bottom shelf of the dishwasher. It warped and no longer sealed.

Monday, after my dentist appointment, I stopped at the “Bargain Box.” Under a table in a box marked “plastic,” was a dirty, Tupperware “Ice Cream Keeper!” I gladly paid the $2. (The profits go to the hospital auxiliary.)

I put it on the top shelf of the dishwasher. After washing it, I tackled the stains with a “Magic Eraser.” Then I washed it again. It looks new!

As I put it away, a stack of Rubbermaid containers tipped over. I really need to get rid of some of them!

In fact, I may never use the spring-form pan on the shelf below. Time for spring cleaning.

Ecclesiastes 11:2, “Don’t hoard your goods; spread them around. Be a blessing to others. This could be your last night.” The Message
