Limits for a Reason

Today the strangest thing happened while I was emptying the bathroom trash. Every so often I wonder why I just don’t buy a larger trashcan. I have to empty that garbage so often because the container is so small.

I thought about small spaces, small containers, and all the limitations of an ordinary life. And then I remembered how marvelous it is to need that emptying out because the space is so small. I remembered the daily dependence on Jesus, the need for confession—of emptying out sin, and for daily provision.

The small trash can will do.
