Recently an email came my way listing the 40-some-odd uses for WD40 (the 1953-developed rust preventative, water displacement compound for protecting missile parts). Every time I see the name, I immediately associate it with WWJD (What Would Jesus Do).

So, it wasn’t a far jump to compare the top five uses of WD-40 with WWJD/Scripture, and here’s what I found…

Here's the pattern: WD-40, but WWJD
Protects silver from tarnishing but
Psalms 41:2 The LORD protects them and keeps them alive. He gives them prosperity and rescues them from their enemies.

Removes road tar /grime but
Isaiah 25:8 Yes, he'll banish death forever. And God will wipe the tears from every face. He'll remove every sign of disgrace From his people, wherever they are. Yes! God says so!

Cleans/lubricates guitar strings. But,
Hebrew 9:13 If that animal blood and the other rituals of purification were effective in cleaning up certain matters of our religion and behavior, think how much more the blood of Christ cleans up our whole lives, inside and out.

Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making it slippery. But,
Psalms 37:6 He will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun.

Keeps flies off cows. But,
Exodus 8:31 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

God is so good, and funny! : )
