What Henry Ford teaches us about Christian Gifts March 20 2014
Bible Blessings® Christian Gifts knows the importance of fulfilling our jobs, or duties, here on earth. The automotive pioneer Henry Ford exemplified what it means to appreciate all Christian gifts presented to us – even cardboard boxes.
Thinking Outside the Box
“Do not be like them, for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him.” Matthew 6:8
An American industrialist who founded the Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford championed the idea of producing quality automobiles priced right for the middle class. And, Ford was always thinking out of the box – literally and figuratively.
In one instance, Henry Ford asked some engineers to box the transmissions for his Model-T Fords in certain sized boxes. He gave meticulous dimensions and material instructions for these boxes. The builders were confused, but they did as they were told.
When the transmissions were delivered, the factory workers took apart the boxes and used them for the floorboards. How’s that for thinking out of the box?
To Believe is to Understand
That’s what God does. He knows what we need even before we ask Him and he provides those gifts to us. We may not understand all of His ways, just like the workers who were boxing up the transmissions did not understand. We do not live by our understanding; we live by His promises.
Is there something happening in your life right now that you don’t understand? Remember this verse from Proverbs - Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight - 3:5-6.
