Fresh ideas and new ways?

Have you heard about the new vending machines operating in China? There are only two of this particular kind but the owner is hoping to expand his business in the near future. The vending machines sell live crabs!

No, I’m not kidding and it’s not some kind of marketing prank. The crabs are kept at right around 41 degrees Farenheit so that the little creatures are sleepy and slow to move but still alive. So far, each of the two vending machines averages selling about 200 crabs a day!

I’m not a big seafood eater, nor do I plan to become the American franchise king of live crabs; yet I can’t help but be impressed and inspired by such originality and ingenuity. With enough passion and desire we can still come up with new and fresh ideas.

It’s a new day and a new week. Rather than settle into the normal Monday morning routine and sleep-walk our way through the week; why not ask the Creator of originality and ingenuity to inspire us with fresh ideas and new ways to love Him and love others!

    AMEN! He created all these beautiful things in the world — He can certainly put something original in our lives! I’ll look for that this week now!

    Appreciating YOU, Brother Rick!
