The Power of the Saw
By Admin on 03-11-2016
Every Saturday morning seems to be the time to check out the latest fix-up list posted on the household refrigerator door, which usually leads to a trip to the local hardware store. Once a do-it-yourselfer went into a hardware store and asked about a new saw for cutting firewood. The salesman took a chain saw from the shelf and told him it was the newest model, with the latest in technology, guaranteed to cut ten cords of wood a day. The customer thought that sounded great, so he bought it on the spot.The next day the customer returned, looking somewhat exhausted. “Something must be wrong with this saw,” he moaned. “I worked as hard as I could and only managed to cut five cords of firewood. I used to cut seven with my old saw.”Confused, the salesman said, “Here, let me try it out back on some wood we keep there.” They went to the woodpile, the salesman pulled the starter cord, and as the motor went Vvrrooomm, the customer jumped back shouting, “What is that noise?”(The customer trying to saw wood without the electric power turned on to help him is very much like the believer who attempts to live his religious life without the daily Divine empowerment.
