I moved the gas tank out of the cab and put it under the bed. I have learned the hard lesson about gasoline. What have I learned? I hate running out of it! I have run out more than once in my lifetime. When I fail to take the time to respond to the gauge, when I fail to stop at a station, and when I fail to fill the tank, I soon find myself wondering, “Why am I stranded on the side of the road?” If I truly learned these lessons about petro, why did I ever run out of gas a second time? It must have something to do with the location of the filler cap near the back of the vehicle. When I am enjoying the ride of my life, I usually do not watch the gauge: I look at the scenery. When cruising down the highway, I don’t see the filler neck or the little door on the side of the car. I know it is there. In know how to put gas in the car, but who thinks of that on such a nice day? There are some things that we should do before we ever leave home in the morning; we need to have enough fuel to get through the day. We will go no farther than our preparations will allow us. Check the gas gauge!
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. Psalms 5:3
