Toothpaste……whoever would have thought I would do a blog post on toothpaste?! But, I’m doing it 🙂
Now I don’t know about you, but when I squeeze a tube of toothpaste, I expect toothpaste to come out…and it has never failed me…yet. But have you ever thought of how you could actually use this for an analogy of your life?
Think about it…when you look at a tube of toothpaste, it usually looks pretty good…but it isn’t until you squeeze the tube (apply pressure) that you see what’s really inside.
It’s the same way with us…we may look (and act) good on the outside, but what comes out when pressure’s applied…when God sends a trial your way or when others don’t treat you right? Is your response Christ-like and loving, or is it something completely different than what ‘the package’ shows?
