Little Black Button

I’ve worn out several sewing machines. Every one of them had a black button on one of the sewing feet. You would think I knew what that button was for, wouldn’t you?  But, no.

While watching a ‘remake your jeans’ video on YouTube, the instructor mentioned that thick jean seaming was easily conquered by pressing the little black button on that foot! WHAT???

After all these years of hemming jeans for family and friends, after all those broken needles and stalled machines…now! Now, I find out the purpose of the little black button? I could have found that out by actually reading my sewing manual!

Do you know about the little black buttons of life with God? Do you know what he says about giving, loving, sharing, kindness or obedience?

No? Then I suggest you read your Bible, the manual that came with your salvation.  The answers are in there. Find out that God is available at all times and that he wants to chat with you! Discover that your sins are forgiven. Learn how to parent, or how to be a good employee or a good boss. 

Yes, its like my sewing machine button. The answers are available in the manual.

These are the wise sayings of Solomon, David’s son, Israel’s king— Written down so we’ll know how to live well and right, to understand what life means and where it’s going; A manual for living, for learning what’s right and just and fair.

(Proverbs 1:1-3, MSG)
