Running on three cylinders

The first car I bought never seemed to run very well, and I wasn’t mechanically minded enough to recognise there was a problem. I just thought it was the way that old car was and put up with its coughing and spluttering. Then one week I loaned it to my Dad, who got so fed up with its poor performance that he personally paid to get it fixed. And that’s how I came to know the difference between a car that runs on all four cylinders and one that’s only running on three.

It reminds me of many people whose lives run along quite well, physically, mentally and socially – but still sense there’s something missing. And there is, because we are more than just physical, mental and social beings; we are spiritual beings too, created in the image of God to be in touch with God. It’s faith that gets that fourth cylinder working.
