eSeed: The Six Million Dollar Stumble

Read Psalm 119:133

It was one small misstep for a technician, but it was a big setback for our space program.

The workman tripped on the tail of his lab coat, stumbled and cracked the exhaust nozzle of a space rocket as he fell against it.

The cost to fix this small misstep? Six million dollars.

It was one misstep for King David. He was feasting at home when he should have been fighting at the front. He tripped over Bathsheba and committed adultery.

The cost? Three sons and his kingdom.

Let’s pray with the Psalmist, Lord, “Order my steps in Thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.”

Prayer: We long, Father, for a more satisfying sense of Thy presence and power which will make us equal to all of our problems and perplexities, all of our tasks and troubles. Hear us, we pray: in the name of Jesus. Amen.
