Running Out of Gas

The only thing worse than running out of gas is running out of gas with your wife in the car.

Oh, I don't know if this actually happened to you Larry, but if it did, I can totally sympathize. I once tried to exercise my faith on Sunday by not stopping to get gas and ran out of gas about 10 miles from my home after a long trip. I had my young son in the car too...

Lessons learned... my faith might not be strong enough. Faith without gas is dead. If at all possible, pick up that person stranded on the side of the road (it took me 1/2 hour to get someone to pick me up so I could go and get gas to bring back).

Yup, it actually happened.

Several years ago, my wife and I also ran out of gas. My wife prayed that we would make it to a gas station, and sure enough, we coasted into a gas station. Then we had to push the car from the edge of the gas station to the pump. I suggested that next time, she pray that we actually get to the gas pump!
