Sharp Knives

Daily Gratitude Year 9 - Day 300: Today, I am grateful for sharp knives. 

Do you ever feel like you never have a sharp knife in the drawer when you need one? Our best knives get used often. Our sharpest knives are considered the "good knives". 

Sharp knives help us clean and prepare our foods." The fall tradition of carving pumpkins typically involves a sharp knife or two. There are some other fun tools, but a good sharp knife is very helpful.

A sharp knife is a handy tool in farming and hunters need them, too. The sharper the knife, the easier it is to get the job done. 

When describing someone as being "sharp as a knife", it is a compliment. It means they are smart and savvy. 

I thought about this scripture. It describes the living Word of God as being "sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword." A sword is like a giant knife, right? 

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires." - Hebrews 4:12

I love this analogy about the power of God's Word. It cuts between soul and spirit... between joint and marrow... with swift delivery and preciseness. Perfectly spoken!

Today, I am grateful for sharp knives.
