John Bradshaw - Sixty Gallons of Gas, Down the Drain
A man in Sydney, Australia who stopped at a gas station to put fuel in his boat, put the fuel directly into the fishing rod holder, not the gas tank. 231 liters, more than 60 gallons, 536 Australian dollars worth of fuel, close to 400 US Dollars, it all went on the ground.
Some rod holders look like gas tank openings and if you're distracted, well, mistakes happen. We all make mistakes, some more serious than others. How does God relate to our inadequacy? 2 Peter 3:15 says, "The long suffering of our Lord is salvation".
God is patient with us and that equates to the work of salvation being done in our lives. It might be good to remember that God is patient with you, that'll lighten your burden when you feel like a failure, and it'll motivate you to be patient with others. I'm John Bradshaw for It Is Written.
