It happens regularly…you get something to put together and you think you can do it just with the pieces in front of you. You realized you missed a step.
I went 400 miles away from home to pick up a car. I got into the car to drive home. I noticed the side mirror was not right. I tried to find the control. I pulled over to the side of the road. I looked again. I don’t see it!
I looked in the glove compartment and found the manual. It is two inches thick, and I need to get on the road. I rolled down the window and pressured the mirror with my hand. That works fine. I hope I did not mess something up.
When I got 30 miles from home, I stopped at a daughter’s house. She came out to look at the car, and I mentioned about the window. She reaches over behind the steering column and points to a spot by the door. “That’s your mirror control!” I better get reading.
I have a Bible (one inch) on top of the car manual. Obviously, the print in the car manual is done with pictures…but you get the idea. All the manuals and instructions, have a great impact and save time.
The Bible—Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth – unknown
We all can use guidance to navigate life’s situations.
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105 There are instructions as to how to live and be guided by principles that we may consider to be better than “trial-and-error!” More error than trial…for me! “Let me try that again!”
The Bible gives instructions: it corrects us when we are wrong, or we are not sure. It teaches us how to live in a correct or “right way.” It equips us for life. II Timothy 3:16-17
If I could give advise you: The Bible gives free advice! Let the Bible be your guide!
