Sharpening the Bit aka Lessons From the Shop

My hubby bought a drill bit sharpener quite awhile ago. It worked really well when he first bought it. But when he got it out the other day, it was not working well at all. He tried several times and could not figure out what was wrong. It was eating up his drill bit!

So, he decided he should rewatch the instructional video. Wouldn’t you know? There was one tiny step he had left out. Just one tiny step! When he tried it again, putting that step back in, it worked just fine.

We thought about the spiritual parallels to this:

How many times have we been so sure we were doing things the right way…G-d’s way, but we were not?

How many times have we thought we remembered what the scriptures said, but we were wrong?

How many times have we decided we could do it our way rather than G-d’s way?

We need to be studying the Word of G-d and continuing in the Word of G0d. We need to make sure we have it right and be careful about being dogmatic. Many times over the course of my life, I have gained new insight that showed me that my understanding was incorrect. I have to be humble to allow G-d to give me that new understanding and to allow it to change my life.
