Good Bye to the Rim

March 23, 2016

As difficult as it might seem to believe, I was having a coffee at Tim Horton’s the other day and I heard a staff member comment on how pleased the staff was that the roll up the rim contest was finished for yet another year.

Curious, I asked why that was?  She replied, explaining that some customers would get upset when they didn’t win. Interesting.  They were upset because they were leaving not having what they didn’t have when they went arrived.

Roll up the rim is a life lesson dear reader. For all the scraping and conniving, all the work and toil that we expend during our brief time on spaceship earth, each us will leave not having what we didn’t have when we arrived. Or as Job said, “naked I came into this world and naked I will depart.”  

We all know that we can’t take it with us, so why are we so willing to sacrifice what we will have forever to gain what we’ll only have for a while?  The Apostle Paul tells us that the prize is an eternity with Christ and every cup is a winner if we are only willing to roll it up and claim the prize. 

Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
