What Drives You?

Yesterday was an incredibly wonderful day. I have taken a break from riding my stationary bike in the living room (yes… in the living room… that’s where the TV is.) So I grabbed the iPod that kept me sane while working alone in a warehouse and hit the streets. The weather was so great outside!

I noticed people driving very different vehicles. Some were large and full of people and some were large and only carried the driver. Some were small and stuffed with passengers and some were small and… well… you get the point.

As I walked I began to wonder about the people driving the cars. A car’s main function is to do the bidding of the one who controls it - the driver. Some have luxuries and others are falling apart, but since the creation of the automobile, cars have had one main job… carrying stuff (people and possessions) from point A to point B.

As we read the creation narrative and then take a look at the Life of Christ, one of the things that jump out as being primary is that creation was designed to serve the creator. Sin has, of course, marred all that.

Imagine for a moment if vehicles started driving wherever and when ever they wanted to! That is scary, but the question remains:

What or Who is driving you?

And before you answer, keep in mind that there are only two answers:

  1. God.
  2. Some one or something other than God.
