“That’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.”
We’ve all said that a zillion times. Sliced bread has become the measuring stick of all great inventions. But has it ever occurred to you that there really was a person who invented sliced bread?
Meet Otto Rohwedder, of Davenport, Iowa. Working for Chillicothe Baking Company, Mr. Rohwedder invented sliced bread in 1928.
Otto was like all of us. We all have at least one good idea in us. The key is to find it and then let it out.
We are encouraged to “eagerly desire the greater gifts” by Paul (1 Corinthians 12:31). God has gifted each of us in order to use us to bless someone else. Don’t wait until you have it all together to get to work.
I used to think that if I could ever achieve lasting recovery, I could make a difference in my world. But now I am convinced that by making a difference in my world I can maintain lasting sobriety.
Recovery Step: Think outside the box. Do something no one else has done. Your next move might just be the greatest thing since sliced bread.
