June 02 – A Dog in the Driver’s Seat

Last month, astonished onlookers, near Abington Scotland watched as a utility vehicle rolled down a steep hill and across a major highway finally hitting a security barrier, with Don, a border collie at the wheel. Farmer Tom Hamilton left the dog in his vehicle while he inspected his lambs. The incident inspired a traffic scare and an online joke- fest, because it looked as though the dog was driving. Sometimes we feel like this poor dog must have felt, as our lives spin out of control. We go faster and faster, but don’t know how to stop. Perhaps in trying to direct our own lives, we have forgotten that the God who made us wants to guide us in the right way. The Word of God tells us, “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.” When lives become aimless, it is time to vacate the driver’s seat and invite God to take control.
