“For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”
– Matthew 6:14
Ready for a mess and a lot of fun? Stick an egg in the microwave. I love word pictures, and this is a powerful one – literally. The visual is that if we have a heart that wants to hold on to things and not forgive, it starts to grow on itself and leads to explosive anger, resentment and/or sadness. It may not look like anything is happening on the outside, but after a while, it explodes and it does come out in all kinds of ugliness.
This is awesome! How’s the cleanup and does it leave any damage? Thanks!
There was clean up, but it was worth it. It wiped off fairly easy. There was no damage done. Thanks for taking an interest. Let me know how it works out for you.
how long does it take to explode?
Funny – I was just talking with a marriage group about this experiment last night. I do not remember how long it takes, but I did a quick Google search and one person said 45 minutes. I would definitely be there to supervise and just push stop on the microwave after it explodes. Hope that helps!
Surely you meant 45 SECONDS!?
