Olympic Lifeguards

Good morning! 

Growing up, my dad had an expression, “That’s about as worthless as teats on a boar hog.” Thus meaning a male hog had no need for his teats since the female was the only one with mammary glands and responsible for nursing the baby piglets. 

Whatever it was my dad was talking about when he used that expression,  you could pretty much count on it being worthless.

Take a look at this picture. This Olympic lifeguard seems anything but excited to be doing the task he’s been assigned to accomplish.  

This photo op is worth a thousand words in my opinion. It gives new meaning to my dad’s outdated phrase. It could certainly display the updated caption, “That’s about as worthless as an Olympic lifeguard in the 100m butterfly”. 

Not alot of need for our friend, Mr. Olympic Lifeguard.  ðŸ˜¦ Seriously, does he really look like he is having fun at the Olympics? Or in any need of saving Michael Phelps?  And do you really think Michael Phelps with his 28 Olympic medals would ever need his life saved while in a swimming pool? 

Let’s all go through life being worthy instead of worthless. Let’s be the Michael Phelps in the world instead of the Olympic lifeguards. Let’s work hard. Be valuable. Worth our weight in gold. Not worthless.

Let’s all make sure our deeds here on earth are good. Worthy of God’s praises, not just man’s. Let’s be life livers and let Christ be the lifesaver.

They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed.                                                  Titus 1:16

Love and laughter,
