What the microwave taught me about sin.
by Annie Glasel 6/09/2010 / Humor
Could microwaves and other household kitchen appliances were meant as object lessons on sin? Here are a few things we can learn from the microwave.
1. I have a designer.
2. I was designed for a purpose.
3. I was purchased for a price.
4. I came with an owner's manual.
5. When I am not used properly for the purpose intended by the designer,
5a. I can explode and/or expire from misuse.
5b. I could be damaged.
5c. I could be covered or stained with offending substances.
6. If I survive the misuse,
6a. I can be cleaned.
6b. I could be restored.
6c. Some cleaning takes time.
6d. Some damages may be permanent.
6e. Some stains may become part of me.
7. If I am left to my devices after misuse,
7a. I could become smelly and moldy;
7b. I could contaminate other food or items that come in contact with me;
7c. I may not function properly.
8. I have an expected lifetime.
9. If I served my purpose, then I was well worth the investment.
I've written to ease my pain; I've written to hear my voice; I've written for vanity; I've written for sanity; I've written for fun; I've written for laughs; I've written for me; I've written for money. But until I write for God, this talent is for naught.
