It was painted a gorgeous green and was decorated with several splendid flowers....... and, it had a bright pink ribbon painted around the rim at the top.
How many of you have decorated trash cans sitting in your garage?

I love this one!
Do you think that the beauty of these trash cans make them smell any better than the old
I somehow doubt it!!
Here I go again!!!
My thinker has been a thinking.....
Lets pretend that we are at a Home Depot Store and we are told that we can have any trash can that we want to choose. There, in the same bin, is a mixture of some beautifully painted trash cans, cans with outstanding college logos, and ....... some ugly old cans that are just plain and simple.
Most people would choose the cans that held beauty, not realizing that inside was a whole lot of.... filthy, stinky trash. On the other hand, for those that were last in choosing, they found that all they had to choose from were the cans with less attractive qualities. Just so happens though.....that these cans were filled with all kinds of sweet smelling roses and a huge assortment of goodies!
Hmmmm......would certainly make one wish that they had chosen more carefully!
Isn't this just the way we are.....Without concern for what a person might be filled with inside, we always look for what is splendid and charming on the outside.
Sometimes we pass up on what is good, pure, honest and admirable..... because our eyes are only focused on what seems to be so charming. Sometimes, charm can be disguised by some pretty bad attributes. Like..... anger, bitterness, arrogance, pessimism, envy, rudeness, selfishness, dis-honesty, ..........
Wow.....isn't it amazing how God can speak to us even through a decorated trash can? love it!!
