Grape Scissors

There are 100 pairs of grape scissors at the bottom of the ocean.

I had to look it up.  I found this video on YouTube about grape scissors and Stephen Fry:

So what are they doing at the bottom of the ocean?

104 years and 6 days ago the Titanic sank.  Among its inventory was 7000 heads of lettuce, 1500 champagne glasses, and 100 pair of grape scissors.

I wonder how many pair were used during the above water part of the journey of the Titanic.  Hmm…

They are safe and secure at the bottom of the ocean.  Why weren’t they saved?

In the midst of fatal tragedy, no husband looked at his wife and said, “Quick, before you get on this life raft, run to the kitchen and get some grape scissors.  Save as many as you can!”

They are pretty cool to have if you like grapes, but grape scissors will not save your life in iceberg infested waters.  That is why they are at the bottom of the ocean instead of in a life raft.

There is a lot of stuff in my life – really cool, historic, shiny stuff.  I like to have cool stuff.   I think there are some grape scissors in my soul.

That stuff cannot save my life.  It is nice to have, but I am not going to grab it when the ship starts sinking.  

That makes me wonder: If I am not going to use it, and eventually I’m just going to let it sink, why do I bother with that stuff at all?

Maybe I will stop getting grape scissors for my soul and start investing in a raft.

John 11:25 “Jesus said, ‘I am the Resurrection and the Life.  The one that believes in Me will live, even though they die.”

Come by and talk to me sometime – I can show you how to invest in the Resurrection.
