Thought for the Day: Our carbon monoxide detectors went off yesterday here at the house. We were not concerned, but when we called the manufacturer of the detectors, they (for true safety and legal reasons) told us to call the fire department. Now we tried everything to silence them, but nothing worked. I was even pondering the hammer, but we caved and called. I pleaded with them to come incognito, no sirens. It wasn’t an emergency. They did come in the big fire truck, but no sirens. Five delightful firefighters (my wife added the adjective nice-looking) came in and checked the house for any carbon monoxide. There was nothing. After a lengthy inspection, they suggested that the detectors were old and there was probably a bad sensor. They returned to the fire station and we replaced six carbon monoxide detectors in the house. I kind of felt foolish, but at no point did they make me feel foolish. I think about God, and God not only shows absolutely no partiality, but God never seeks to make us feel foolish. We can call out to God in prayer, even when we learn later that it was a false alarm, and God does not roll the divine eyes. God doesn’t treat us like the boy who cried wolf. In fact, I think it pleases God when we call, and I think those fire fighters were glad we called. I imagine they’ve known tragic situations when people didn’t call and should have.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for your love that bridges every divide and reaches every corner of creation. There is no place we can go, and there is no situation unworthy of your attention. You genuinely care. Amen.
