“…We care more about driving our vehicles then we do about God….”

How and why does one focus on driving a car?  Again, this is not a trick question.    Follow me on this… When driving a car, we MUST stay completely focused on what is front of us, to the left, to the right, and even what is going on to the rear of us, such that we can see.  We must KNOW what is going on all around us.  On a clear day, we should be able to see 6 or 8 miles ahead of us, if driving in the California desert.  When driving, we must be totally prepared, totally aware of our surroundings, and committed to getting from point A to point B, without major error, mishap, collision, or death.  On average, most drivers spend 5 years behind the wheel of their vehicle of choice, or about 10 hours per week.  (This scenario does not consider long-distance truck drivers).  In order to be proficient in our driving habits, we MUST complete driving training, and months and months of developing good driving habits, that allows us to safely move through the challenges of being on the roads of America.  That said, how much time do we spend
preparing for the road trip to Heaven; to life-ever-lasting in Heaven, or Hell; as opposed to 5 years on the roads of America?
 If we attend some form of “church environment,” say for 2 hours per week, then we have invested about 10 months of our entire life, of 75 years, in worship.  Double that to 4 hours per week; then it equates to, and we’ve spent just 1 year, and 8 months.  Not much, is it?  If we spent one hour per day, in worship, over 75 years, it would only equate to about 3 years.  With all of that said, we spend almost twice as much time driving then we spend preparing ourselves for an eternity of either Heaven.  Does that say much for
us…on average?  We care more about driving our vehicles then we do about God.  Psalm 39:4-5 “O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am! Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah …cjlb…3/4/14
