Bits and Pieces of Knowledge

Written by Luz Leigh - June 2007

Today I decided to clean house. Now that doesn't happen very often. You see, I just keep the house at an acceptable level for the health department; just so they won't shut me down. As I was cleaning, I was listening to a video about some of history's most mystifying stories and claims which are included in the Bible. And I might add, proven by the Bible to be true.

The video included renowned Bible scholars and knowledgeable men of the secular world. It was interesting to hear how the skeptics would try to "explain" away topics such as Moses parting the Red Sea, the burning bush, Sodom and Gomorrah, the Tower of Babel, and the tumbling down of the walls of Jericho. Then here would come the men of God who could refute their claims using the Word of God and scientific evidence.

Now I always want to shake Lot's wife, you know, the one who looked back toward the wicked city from which they had just been rescued. The woman had been TOLD not to look back, but she just had to do so. To this day there is a formation of salt that is referred to by the locals in that area as Lot's wife. At least she is famous.

As I was mopping the kitchen floor, I thought about how our lives are a lot like that floor. When I finished with the mopping, the floor would be clean and shiny. Our lives are cleansed from sin when we allow the Lord to come into them, but just as that kitchen floor will get soiled again, so will our lives. We will need to be "mopped," that is forgiven for sins that creep into our lives. We will never lose our salvation, but we will lose blessings when we allow sin to stain our "clean floors."

I did very little dusting, because you see, my home is a very important place when it comes to producing cobwebs. Cobwebs can be applied to an open wound to help clot the blood and stop the bleeding. In case there is a great emergency and the medical profession needs my assistance, I want to be prepared with a good supply of cobwebs. Well, that seems like a good reason to leave the dust and cobwebs in place. My son recently tried to convince me the cobwebs were there so spiders could catch their food. Just because the man is a certified Emergency Medical Technician he thinks he knows it all. He doesn't believe that after you kill a snake, you must chop it into small pieces and burn it, but what does he know? And if you place a child infected with chicken pox under the chicken roost for a short period of time, the itching will stop. Can't convince him of that either. All this knowledge I have is just going to waste. I need to write a book.
