The Load

How much work has this old truck accomplished?  I can tell by the scars and dents on the back of the cab that there have been a few burdens.  The way the front of the box was smashed up against the cab, it would indicate a rare load or two may have slid forward after a hard stop.  How much more could have been stacked up back there?  I suppose now with the new engine the old truck could haul more than ever before.  Yet the framework is still light duty pick up, 3100 Chevrolet, half ton.  Sometimes we will get into a project a little deeper than we should.  In the process we realize that this potential risk we now face has been here all along!  Sure it is only a few more bricks!  Wisdom would dictate the prudence of a little thought prior to loading.  It would be smart to avoid getting into trouble at any stage of life.  It would not be good to engage in activities that will only abuse the life out of us.  There are common things that require way too much work!  It looked like fun at the time!  The payoff is too high!  We were never intended to carry a load of those bricks anyway!  Sometimes, it would be better to never load the truck!

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.                                             1 Cor 10:13 ESV
