Clean up your pipeline..!
“No madam, there’s an easier method!” “I’m sure there is,” I said, not liking the dangerous look the wife gave the plumber, “I’m sure there is! What’s it?” “Clean the rust!” said the plumber matter of fact like. “Your pipes have lots of rust in them, once they are cleaned the water will flow!” I watched that day as the plumber took my pipes apart, one by one, I watched as he inserted a piece of sharp metal and cleaned them one by one, and when he put them back, the water flowed, just like before.
How like our lives isn’t it? We suddenly find we don’t get that many calls from our friends anymore: “Hey Sam why haven’t you called me?” “I called you! Bob, have you forgotten I called you last time, you said you were busy and you would call back!” “That was a year ago!” “Yep!” “So let’s get rid of the rust!” “What did you say?” “Let’s meet for dinner tomorrow, shall we?” “Yes lets do that!” And sometimes it’s not with just friends or relatives that rust has accumulated between, it could be with the One above:
“Hey God I haven’t seen you answering my prayers lately?” “Bob, I haven’t seen you praying lately!” So start cleaning up your pipeline today, scrape out the rust between you and your spouse, you and your friends and yes, between you and your God, then watch the rush of love that flows through again..!
