On my first day working at the gas station, I watched a senior co-worker measure the level of gasoline in the under-ground tanks by lowering a giant measuring stick down into them.
“What would happen if I threw a lit match into the hole?” I joked.
“It would go out,” he replied very matter-of-factly.
“Really?” I asked, surprised to hear that. “Is there a lack of oxygen down there or some safety device that would extinguish it before the fumes ignited?”
“No,” my co-worker continued. “The force from the explosion would blow out the match.”
I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.
Thought for the day
“Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy” Ephesians 4:24 NLT
When God wants to remove the defects in your life, he doesn’t just snap his fingers so that it happens instantly. He does it incrementally.
