Do you trust yourself?

I recall in my teenage years how incredibly difficult it was for me to learn how to drive an automobile. With all the various things to remember, shifting gears, and being on a big highway with everyone else, I would often question my ability to drive. Yet I never questioned the planning done by engineers, the construction completed by road crews or anyone’s logic used in designing the actual routing of the roads. I don’t recall even once asking if the road actually matched the direction of the map in front of me. I simply trusted it to be so.

Do you ever wonder why it seems so innately easy to accept roads created by humans, yet we doubt the roads of our own life which lead us to our amazing Selves? We often ask God why we have to go this way or that way, when we should consider asking God if there is a better or different route to take other than the one we are on.

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

The Methodist Class Meeting was much like the Giant Sequoia Trees in California. Just like the Methodist Class Meeting, the Great Sequoias “hold each other up.” They may reach a height of 311 feet, an age of 3200 years. They often weigh 2.7 million pounds.
