Life Like a Toilet

I read a beautifully heart-warming story about a middle school in Oregon that was faced with a unique problem. Many girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the restroom. After they put on their lipstick, they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Finally, the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all of the girls to the restroom and met them there with the custodian.

She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance guy to clean one of them.

He took a long-handled squeegee,

dipped it into the toilet,

then cleaned the mirror.

Surprise! The girls no longer put lip prints on the mirrors.

A mirror was made to reflect, not to kiss.

Truly life changing truth:

If you don’t get your purpose right, your life can be like a toilet.

Your purpose is multi faceted and involves your gifts and skills and experiences and personality, and it will unfold over a lifetime. BUT...if you do this every day – you’ll be on your way:

Every day seek to make Him look good.
And all will be good.

Simple. Profound. Jesus said it this way,

 “In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”  ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

A great prayer to start the day:

Lord, let everything I think, say and do today, make You look good.
