“You are not your own.” –1 Corinthians 6:19
Sitting in my Dad’s garage is his workmanship. Car buffs will be pleased to know that my Dad piddles on a 1934 Ford Coupe every weekend. As a matter of fact, he’s been tinkering with it for as long as I can remember. There’s not a corner of that car Dad doesn’t know. He’s taken it apart and put it back together his entire life. How is that? Well, that coupe was his very first car; given to him by Granddaddy when Dad was only 12 years old. Yep, he still has it. Well, about 42 years ago, Dad sold it for a few hundred dollars to help pay the doctor bills when my brother was born. But years later, Dad traveled half-way across the country, spending much more than what he sold it for, and bought it back.
Sitting in front of your computer is God’s workmanship (Ephesians 2:10), completely unique (Galatians 5:26), knit together in the womb (Psalm 139), and made in God’s own image (Genesis 1:26). Is there any wonder why the bible says that we should honor Him with our bodies? After all, his Son went from Heaven to earth and bought us at a price (1 Corinthians 6:20). So go ahead, tinker a little. Piddle a bit. Enjoy working on something with the Lord He designed and gave to you.
(You know, I don’t think Dad will ever finish that old car. Not because he can’t, but because I think he simply enjoys working on something Granddaddy first gave him, and they worked on together.) –Jimmy Peña www.prayfit.com/2012/05/
