What Do You Drive?

BIBLE READING: 1 Timothy 5: 1 - 2 1 Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. 2 Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.

Take a moment and reflect on 1 Timothy 5: 1 - 2.  What does this mean to you?

BLOG: I learned to drive a manuel stick shift on a dump truck.  Much like the one that is pictured above.  While I learned to use the low gears for pulling large loads and how to "double clutch" these skills didn't apply to a Honda Hatchback or Volkswagon Beatle.  If I tried to drive those small cars, I would almost burn the clutch up.

My point?  The shifts that God is leading you through are nothting like the ones He's leading me through.  I can look back on my life now and see things that God allowed me to go through that were for today.  I would guess that you can see some of those things too.

John 14:12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.

Jesus' ministry made it obivous to us that God is always preparing us for something new and different.  Did the 12 disciples ever think that they were going to speak in other tongues and become the foundation of what we call the Church today?  I don't think they had a clue.  

God will lead you life through a series of changes (shifts) that have a bigger vision in mind.  Maybe you know what that is, maybe you don't.  But it is our desire and responsibility to follow the Holy Spirit and expect great things. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, lead me to see and understand Your vision for my life today.  AMEN
