The duct tape fixes is a short story written by Bob Lutes. This story is about how you can fix almost everything with duct tape.

The Duct Tape Fix

Early one Monday morning two young men came into a small restaurant. After they were seated a discussion started about how to fix things. Eventually the subject of using duct tape came up.

The first young man explained, “ I fixed a door handle on a closet. The duct tape held it in place and kept the door closed.”

The second young man answered, “I fixed my back porch light by taping together the globe with duct tape.”

Again the first young man replied, I fixed a water leak in the basement by wrapping duct tape around a drain pipe.”

Then the second young man not to be out done replies, “Well that’s nothing… I made a window for my shed that opens and closes with duct tape”!

Still trying to outdo each other the first young man pointing out the window at his truck and said, “yeah, look at the back of my truck. I put my bumper on my truck with duct tape.”

This conversation was going back and forth and back and forth to see who could use duct tape more and better ways.

An older gentleman sitting at the next table had overheard this conversation going back and forth. As he was leaving he stopped at their table and the older and wiser gentlemen said “excuse me, I’ve overheard your conversation on Duct tape… But there’s something that fixes things better than duct tape… in fact it can fix everything.”

They both looked at the each other and replied, “What could better than duct tape?”

The older gentleman replied “3 Nails, yelp 3 nails fixes everything.”

The young men looked at each other very puzzled and as the elderly gentleman was starting to walk away they turned to him and said, “What do you mean? 3 Nails can’t fix everything! Explain how can 3 nails fix everything?

The elderly gentleman turned back to face them and smiled. “3 nails pounded into a cross over 2000 years ago fixed everything!” he said as he walked away.

Our Savior Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross and died for our sins. Christ’s death and resurrection has fixed everything with our relationship with God. My friend if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ I invite you today to take a minute in your busy life and ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins. After all, He already paid the price for your sins… He died so you may live. I pray the Lord blesses and keeps you.
