Last night I helped a friend change a flat bike tire.
It took a lot longer than we expected because we couldn’t figure out how to put it back together.
Things were going very smoothly at first…we took off the tire, replaced the tube, inflated the tire and then we ran into trouble…the derailleur.
Before you start judging me, at least consider these circumstances:
- It was dark
- Changing a tire is a rare occasion
- A derailleur is a nightmare…I would blame the French for this, but I can’t say that I’ve engineered anything better. 🙂
Finally we figured it out and felt kind of dumb afterwards because it really was a simple solution, it just seemed difficult. Truthfully, the answer was staring us in the face the entire time.
Life is this way sometimes.
We look at it from every different angle and only get more confused. We try to understand it and yet we still end up with more questions than answers.
This Sunday we will study from 1 John 2:3-11. In these verses, John makes his point that a lot of people can talk a “good game” but only some actually live it out.
Authentic Christianity is not a hard as it may seem…in fact sometimes the answers are right in front of us.
I hope you have a great weekend and I can’t wait to worship together on Sunday.
