While waiting for my daughter to get out of school today, I enjoyed one of my favorite pass times—reading bumper stickers. There was one that gave me pause to think. “Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car..”.
The bumper sticker statement was very true; being in the garage doesn’t make the car a car. Although, I’ve never heard anybody who kept their car in the garage or took it to The Garage for regular maintenance say they thought it was a mistake or a waste of time–.
However, I have heard some folks say they wish they HAD kept their car in the garage instead of leaving it parked out by the curb—but—I don’t think anybody ever put that on a bumper sticker. Things that make you say, “hmmmm”.
Hebrews 10:25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
