How Do Hotels Achieve This? (Proverbs 24:30-34)

The glass shower doors were pristine and clear, not a single water spot or soap scum. It was the antithesis of my home shower doors and I wanted to know how they achieved it. I was admiring the splendor of the bathroom in the hotel where we were recently vacationing. Thousands of people have stayed in this same room for over twenty years, yet it looked as though it was brand new. How do hotels achieve this?

Turning to the internet, I found some quick answers. Vinegar or ammonia-based glass cleaners are effective. However, sometimes there is damage to the glass and even the most fervent effort may not be able to undo it. I decided on cleaning the glass with a vinegar mixture. While it did work, there were still some resistant water spots. Surely there must be another method? Digging a bit deeper into the internet, I discovered a more obvious answer. Since hotels usually clean their bathrooms everyday, the usual buildups on a glass shower door do not have time to accumulate. In other words, they do not have to deal with the issues I am facing since they are proactive to address it when it begins. God reminds us of something very similar in our lives.

I walked by the field of a lazy person, the vineyard of one with no common sense. I saw that it was overgrown with nettles. It was covered with weeds, and its walls were broken down. Then, as I looked and thought about it, I learned this lesson: A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest—then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber. 

Proverbs 24:30-34 (NLT)

The answer is obvious to anyone who listens to God’s instructions. Whether it is water spots on a shower door, overgrown weeds in a garden, or completing a job at work or school, if one procrastinates or neglects a task that needs to be done on a regular basis, the consequences may be dire, coming upon us like an armed robber. 

Our faith is similar. Whether it is putting off spending time with God by reading His Word or communing with Him in prayer, we need to be sustained by God every moment of the day. We must put on the armor of God so that our walls of faith are not eroded and broken down by the worries of the world. 


Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
