THE LOST PROFESSION
As I was doing laundry today, I happened to think about an old profession that you just don't see anymore. It seems that, now-a-days, you just can't make a decent living doing certain things like you used to.
In particular, I was thinking back to biblical time. Wasn't there a profession called "bleaching?" No, I'm not talking about laundries or dry cleaners. I'm talking about people that were specialists in bleaching.
I believe the bible teaches us that there were good bleachers, and bad bleachers, because if you had money, you would take your clothes to the finest bleachers. If you were not so well off, there were economy bleachers.
If you used one of the economy bleachers, your clothes might not come back as white as you would like. I'm thinking that good bleachers -- used more bleach. The finest bleachers must have really poured the bleach in.
