Alignment

Pam Ford Davis

Our son Lee is a shop manager at a well-established tire business. He knows his business and has wisdom to treat management, staff and customers with courtesy. He has built a steady business and lasting relationships. Many returning customers make periodic visits for alignment. If workers balance sales, installation and maintenance with service all runs smoothly. When there is a weak link, realignment is a necessity.

 

It may be time for me to make a mental note to do routine maintenance. Am I, a branch aligned to the vine? “Remain united to me, and I will remain united to you. A branch cannot bear fruit by itself; it can do so only if it remains in the vine. In the same way you cannot bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine, and you are the branches. Whoever remains in me, and I in him, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me (John 14:4-5 TEV).”

 

It is ludicrous to believe a severed branch will produce fruit; I am a branch and I am depend on the vine. “Father forgive me for trying to do kingdom ministry apart from the Master.”
