A True Story From Max
Here is a cute story with a great Biblical moral from long-time friend, Max Taylor. The Bible verse that illustrates his story is:
“And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” Luke 4:12
I looked at a quote from a friend in which she said, “Sometimes you are the pigeon and sometimes you are the statue.”
That reminded me of something that happened to me many years ago in NC.
I was probably 5 years into the pool manufacturing business. I had the worst day of my career. We were pouring concrete on a commercial job and a had a form partially blow. I was behind in time and over on money with the project. I went to another job we were working and the concrete company had finished a job and had done an absolute nightmare job finishing the concrete. I was next to throwing in the towel. I jumped up on the side of the pool and sat down. I exclaimed to my two workers, “This is the single worst day of my life. Nothing else can go wrong. Nothing can make it worse. In fact, GOD couldn’t make things any worse for me right now.”
That is exactly what I said.
I sighed and less than five seconds later, a pigeon came out of nowhere, I mean nowhere, and dive bombed me and left a deposit on my head.
“I guess things could get worse, and I think I better not tempt God again.” Moral: Just what I said… things can get worse and don’t challenge God.
