There is alot of wisdom when you compare yourself to a car. Yesterday we discussed the importance of knowing the type of fuel that is carrying us forward. For instance, have you really thought about what fuels your car? Is it the love that you carry in your heart in serving others or is it with no consideration of the people on the road due to your own selfish gain? Do you travel the road as if you own it or are you considerate of others that may be in your way? Did you ever think that God allowed that person to pull out in front of you to possibly teach you a lesson in the fruit of the spirit?
Think about it…Which do you enjoy more, the time in the car with the family as Clark Griswald did in National Lampoon’s Vacation or the time in the two seated car with Christy Brinkley? Do you recall how Chevy Chase tried to keep up with that little red sports car and how she caused him to have a disturbance in his family?
In this movie series with Chevy Chase we can learn a biblical message of how spiritually Satan will use others as he did with Christy Brinkley to divide our families and cause us to try to keep up with what the world has to offer. We are all tested spiritually daily by Satan to see if he can throw us off course. These trials are there to help build our faith.
Are you unhappy with your car because it is not flashy enough or because it doesn’t have that power under the hood? Maybe we need to examine the fuel to insure what is driving us forward.
