We all know where to go for answers to life’s deep questions like: What is the meaning of life? Where am I going? What should I wear today? This is when reading the Bible, programing your GPS, and having a fashion consultant all come to the rescue.
I know God is interested in small things and capable of handling them, but I do hesitate to overload Him with shallow matters when there are so many colossal issues needing His attention. And even though He knows what a goofball I am, sometimes I have to admit I’m embarrassed to ask Him some of my questions.
Let me give you some examples.
I opened the refrigerator door one morning and saw this random piece of aluminum foil sitting on a shelf. What mindless state was I in when I put it back in refrigerator?
Why doesn’t McCormick make spice jars big enough to accommodate a teaspoon?
Just as I was about to decide there were no answers to these questions, I found this card in my work mailbox. It turns out none of my concerns are too silly or trivial for God to handle.
What I didn’t realize was that the person at the other end of the 1-877 number offers ’employee assistance.’ She didn’t have a lot of specific answers to my questions, but I do feel like I’m making progress. The voices in my head have subsided, but not before God told me this profound truth: He is stockpiling twist ties along with missing socks and lost marbles in an undisclosed location.
Where do you turn for answers to life’s most shallow questions?
