Today's object is the fridge-freezer, set alongside the parable of the man who built bigger barns and then died.
Fridge-freezers are viewed positively, allowing food to be preserved and helping to ease fluctuations in availability due to seasonal effects. However, there is the flip side of stockpiling food that is eventually discarded.
Loving God, help me to find a healthy balance between wise preparation and wasteful hoarding, not only of food but of any resources in my life. Show me how to employ the riches entrusted to me in the service of others.
(sorry this is so brief, am writing it at the end of a long, fairly intense, day)
