Tying Ties

A man went to his dentist and complained, “Doc, what can I do about these yellow teeth of mine?” The dentist answered, “It’s simple, just wear a brown tie.”

Wearing a tie might solve some problems, but it can also create others. One problem they create is the time required to tie a tie each morning so that you get a good knot and the tie is the right length. But there is a simple way to avoid that problem. Each evening simply loosen your tie enough to slide it over your head without breaking the knot. The next morning simply slip it back on.

You might think that will destroy your tie by making a crease in it. But if the crease is in the knot, who will ever know? And even longstanding creases come out when the tie is dry cleaned.

God wants you to spend time on things that matter most. If you can spend less time each morning tying ties and more time in God’s Word you’ll be redeeming the time.
