Book Review : Jesus take the wheel ch.1

November 10, 2008

Chapter One: Ignition: Who is at the Wheel?—Be a Humble Passenger

This chapter looks at humility and Migdon focuses our attention on children. There are many child-like qualities that God wants us to emulate. Children understand they have no power or influence of their own; they trust instinctively; they are generally teachable; they don’t hide their motives; and their dependency doesn’t embarrass them. Of course, the challenge is for us to adopt these child-like attitudes.

  1. Lately every where I go I find myself thinking about childlike trust. I wrote this the other day as part of a longer article:

    Trusting our heavenly Father to have our best interests at heart; trusting that he wants to give us good things; believing he is orchestrating all the circumstances of our lives. It’s the sort of trust Mary had when she said, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word” (Luke 1:38).

    It’s a relief really not having to figure everything out but rather trust that God will open the ‘right’ doors, bring the ‘right’ opportunities across my path, bring the ‘right’ people into my life all at the ‘right’ time.
