I have been fretting the day my FAVORITE pen runs out of ink. It’s the last pen I have and PaperMate doesn’t make them anymore.
Should I treasure this last pen, set it on a shelf or use it?
What good is a gift if it just sets on a shelf?
God might ask us the same thing. Remember the servants who were entrusted with gifts/talents?
The servant given one thousand said, ‘Master, I know you have high standards and hate careless ways, that you demand the best and make no allowances for error. I was afraid I might disappoint you, so I found a good hiding place and secured your money. Here it is, safe and sound down to the last cent.’The master was furious. ‘That’s a terrible way to live! It’s criminal to live cautiously like that! If you knew I was after the best, why did you do less than the least? The least you could have done would have been to invest the sum with the bankers, where at least I would have gotten a little interest. Matthew 25:24-27 The Message
PaperMate doesn’t even make this pen anymore. I don’t want the new Erasermate or Write Bros. NO! I WANT THE PLAIN JANE PAPERMATE!!!
Amazing, there is always something to be said about an original. There’s none like it!
If you happen to see this original anywhere PLEASE let me know.
