Our dryer went out last week. It came with the house 11 years ago. It was nice with all the bells and whistles. It certainly worked hard and served us well.
You know what we did? We replaced it for a base model dryer. It has only three dials or buttons. It’s a brand name. It wasn’t the cheapest but it was by far not the most expensive. Actually there were beautiful driers four times the price of the one we got.
Oh, money must have been tight? Nope! Not even a factor. Kevin buys cheap stuff. Nope! Not true. I appreciate quality like everyone else.
You see I’ve seen that most people in the world don’t own dryers. I’ve been in villages in India without dryers. You know what happens when the sun doesn’t come out? You wait for days and even then you might still wear damp clothes. That’s part of life. You’re thankful they are clean. dried is optional.
I’m thankful for our base model dryer! I said, “praise the Lord” as I loaded the old dryer into our car to haul off.
My point? Dried clothes is dried clothes. A dryer is a luxury I can easily take for granted. If we allow manufacturers will gladly sell us on more expensive models. Now days it’s so tempting to think there is security in spending more money on something. Again I’m not anti good quality. I am able to say I only need so much. I am able to ask, what about others?
I’m dedicating the rest of my life to make that more or the norm instead of the exception.
Father, thy kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus name, Amen.
