Who needs the instruction manual? Some time ago, I purchased a DIY computer table. It was a cash and carry purchase. The moment I reached home, I quickly opened it up and started assembling. I had not bothered to read the manufacturer’s instructions thinking that IQ and common sense should do the job. However, before long, I got stuck because the sequence was not right, resulting in not being able to attach the other parts to the whole. It took quite a while and a lot of humility to realise that I needed to read the manufacturer’s instructions in order to assemble the DIY Computer Table the way it had been designed to be. So, humbly I picked up the instructions that I had crumpled and thrown aside. If you had been there you could hear saying, “Aiyah, so simple, how could I overlooked this step and that small part.”

Yes, it was a very simple DIY Computer Table and though I failed to assemble it, I could simply disassemble the able and do it again and again. But, life is not like a DIY Computer Table where you can simply do it by trial and error. You cannot assemble, disassemble and then reassemble in life all the time. Some mistakes are costly and fatal. The most sensible and yet the most neglected step in assembling the DIY Computer Table was to read the manufacturer’s instructions. After all, they were the one who designed and manufactured the table. Similarly, for life, the Bible is God the Creator’s instruction manual for us so that we may live our lives the way it was intended it to be, according to Designer. When we do so, we are at peace with Him, with ourselves and others.
