Penn of Denn

I could hardly believe my eyes. My little red car was in pieces, all over the body shop floor. I had left it behind two weeks before, to have some work done on the fenders and rocker panels, but it looked like it had progressed a little bit further than that. The owner wasn’t there and when I called him later, he confirmed that they had discovered more rust and several other problems that needed to be fixed. I was mentally checking my bank account, wondering how much the “other problems” would cost, when Craig assured me that his quote was guaranteed and while it was more work then he had planned on doing, it wasn’t going to cost me any extra. I was impressed; kind of reminded me of an elephant I met who said, “I meant what I said and I said what I meant, an elephant is faithful one hundred percent.”

As Christ followers, do we have that type of integrity in our daily lives? Are we faithful one hundred percent? I think that is what Jesus meant when he said, “let your yes be yes and your no be no.” Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
