Bounty paper towels boast of absorbency; it is a persuasive choice of words. If I spill something, (which I am prone to do) I want something to soak up the liquid pronto! Like lava, it flows in a steady stream ready to saturate everything in its path. I hate to disappoint marketing CEO's, but I put more faith in a dishtowel. Absorbency might be their alias.
I cannot easily stop the blood flow; wounds to the head may rank at the top in rapid flow. As a mother, granny, and past child-care worker I can testify to my panic attacks when a child had a gash on the head, cut on the lip or bit their tongue. It seemed the bleeding would never stop! There was little I could do but apply pressure with a clean damp towel, until I had soaked up the blood.
Am I absorbent? Do I soak up God's word? Is my heart and soul saturated with the Living Water? "The book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it, for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success (Joshua 1:8 NAS)." Success in the material world is fleeting. Spiritual success is a never-ending journey. "Lord, pour out Your transforming word; create a clean and absorbent heart in me."
