Read the Instructions?

My coffee pot died tragically last week. Not to fear. I bought a new one that can have my coffee ready before I wake up!

What a treat…right? Unfortunately, I didn’t read the instructions and it made coffee at 10 p.m. It took a few days and many funny coffee hours before the machine got it right. (Let’s be honest here. It was me that didn’t get it right! I should have read the instructions)

My friend says that she’s “tried God and he didn’t work for her.”  I think I’ll tell her about my coffee pot and give her this quote from Billy Graham.

You're born. You suffer. You die. Fortunately, there's a loophole.

Then I will suggest she read God’s instruction manual, beginning with John 3:16.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16, NIV)

Prayer- Father God, will you please point out to us which part of your instruction manual we have been ignoring and help us to follow the instructions?  In Christ. Amen.
