I was walking down the street the other day and saw a crisp packet lying in the gutter, and I suddenly thought "Isn't that just like the Kingdom of God."
If there is anyone out there who knows how to get on to Thought for the Day, on BBC Radio 4, then I'm your man. It will keep me busy!
Of course it is not seeing crisp packets in gutters that makes you think of the Kingdom of God. No it is the wonderful inventions that we poor human beings come up with that makes you remember that we are inquisitive and inventive creatures. And in this, surely, we are like out Maker. After all, why else would He ever have come up with us?
So this thing is just wonderful. It is a spoon to get jam and jam-like things out of jars, but... wait for it... you don't have to put the spoon onto a plate or anything when you've finished using it. Nor do you have to shove it at your next door neighbour, demanding that he take it and take it NOW.
|The retrieval of Jam and Jam-like thing has never been easier|
This spoon is fantastic. It solves a problem that I was not even aware existed until this spoon showed me the solution. Problem and solution revealed at the same moment!
That's much more like the Kingdom of God than a stupid crisp packet.
