Another random thought about the Christian life when asked by a neighbour to jumpstart their car:
I’ve realised that the Christian life is about hooking people into the correct source to get their batteries recharged. Sometimes that is literally: you have to jump start their car, or give them food or clothing. And other times it’s about jumpstarting their spiritual journey back to the Father.
Either way requires faith in action, and a bit of a jolt to achieve the desired result.
And so we don’t get drained, we need to remember, we are merely the leads… not The Source itself.
