On winter mornings, people late for the train often park their cars in a hurry and forget to turn off the headlights. By the time they return from work in the evening, the car battery is flat and of course, the car won’t start.

Sometimes we can find a similar situation occurring within our own body.  During our busy lives, we sometimes forget we need to switch off from the world occasionally in order to replenish our inner power supply.

It is so easy to forget our human batteries will fail to support us unless we keep them topped up with love, prayer and good works.

If we want to keep our motors running smoothly and shine for all those we meet, it is a good idea to provide regular maintenance to keep ourselves in good working order. A saying from the Quran is, “Sufficient is your Lord as a guide and helper”. So, If our spiritual battery is actin’ up ornery, it is no good hollerin’ for a marshall.

However, a short chat to the source of all our power will soon charge us again.

By the way, there is no call out, or after-hours charge, for this special service.

I’m Peter Mack and that’s faith.
