Driving Lessons – Part I
By: Rick Boxx
November 19, 2012
My daughter, Bekah, received her driver’s permit and was excited to begin driving. The first decision I had to make was, “Which car did I want to put at risk while she learned?”
Although I trust my daughter, total trust requires not only a demonstration of strong character, but also competence. In this case, Bekah had zero competencies.
Fortunately, we anticipated such a day and kept an old Malibu that only had a book value of $600, saving nicer cars from harm. The Malibu has already proven to be a wise choice.
1 Corinthians 4:2 teaches, “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.”
If you have someone new starting in your workplace, start them off with small responsibilities, until they’ve proven faithful.
