Recently, I was watching a documentary about the top 101 inventions of all time. Pretty cool stuff. Human ingenuity is pretty amazing. We’ve figured out how to do all kinds of things.

What are some of the best things human imagination has come up with?

I have to tell you, they may not be very glamorous but I’m pretty thankful for the flush toilet and massaging shower head. Both have made my life a lot easier!

What about you? What do you think are some of the top inventions of all time? [wait for several answers.]

In spite of how smart we are, do you know what we haven’t been able to come up with yet? A way to cheat death and live forever. Yet God has said in the scriptures that he has already taken care of that for us. All we have to do is put our faith in Jesus. It doesn’t have to be ’spiritual giant’ sized faith. Simple faith is sufficient. The same kind we put in our light switch or car ignition. We simply trust that it will work.

I guess, in spite of it all and when you get right down to it, we really do still need God for our very most important need.

Perhaps you will object “I have faith in a light switch because from experience I know it works.” You know that now, but you didn’t before the first time you tried it. Perhaps your reluctance about God is that you’ve never truly given him a fair try.

Perhaps you should reconsider. Give God a try—a real, honest try. Lots of us have done that, and we’ve found him to be even more reliable than electricity—especially during a storm.
