Parking in downtown Sac today to grab some lunch with my co-laborer Scott and we both saw that the sign clearly read, "One Hour Parking". We parked headed to lunch knowing that we had to be back at the car at 12:48 to avoid a parking ticket. So the shock we had when we discovered a parking ticket on the windshield at 12:45. What the heck!?
What we both failed to see was the "other" sign that read, "Pay Station". Who pays for One Hour Parking? I guess Scott does now since he was driving, but really when was the last time you had to read two signs to determine how to park?
This causes me to think about God's word. You can't just read what you want, you have to read all of God's word to experience all of it's wisdom. I want direction not correction, but sometimes to head in the right direction in my life, I must first be corrected.
Next time that you read a portion of God's word that you don't like realize it's only there so that we can really live out the parts that we do enjoy.
"All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. - 2 Timothy 3:16
