The dryer is a wonderful invention.
-Pull out the vent and wipe out the lint.
-Throw a new dryer sheet into the opened dryer and close the door.
-Turn the timer on.
-Press the circular button that starts the dryer.
It was at the final step I realized my mistake. You see a dryer’s sole purpose is to dry clothes. And I had forgotten to add any.
If I had turned my dryer on without placing any clothing inside, the dryer would just be eating energy and I would be wasting money. Also those wet clean clothes inside my washer would not be drying properly.
Even if my dryer was the newest, cleanest, most energy efficient appliance available, if I didn’t use it for its intended use, than it just becomes a very expensive space holder.
God has made you for something special too.
In 1st Corinthians Chapter 12 verse 14 it reads: Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.
Verses 17-19 continue: If the whole body were eyes, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be?
If we love Jesus and have Him in our hearts than we are the body of Christ, and as first 27 says: each one of us are a certain part.
No we’re not dryers, but the concepts the same.
So which dryer are you:
- a dryer, drying clothes? Doing your job correctly?
- a dryer that from the outside you look like you’re doing your job, but on the inside you’re just spinning emptiness?
- a dryer angry that you are just that, a dryer. And your desire to be a washer, oven, or anything else has caused you to stop. Now you’re only collecting dust.
- a dryer that has made plans to take your dryer parts and see what else you can become.
We’re here for a purpose. If I’m not doing what God created me for, than I’m just tumbling hot air and collecting dust.
Now go ask God what He’s created you for.
And as Phillipians 2:14 says: Do everything without complaining.
Because when during laundry, there’s nothing worse than a unbalanced clanking dryer.
