Have you ever seen the bumper sticker that says “God is my Co-Pilot?” The first few times that I saw that I thought it was cute. But the more I thought about it I realized that it wasn’t as cute as I first thought. It implies that I am in the pilot’s seat and God is just off to the side giving advice here and there.
Today I watched my two youngest kids while my wife was out doing a few things. Since it was a pretty nice fall day I asked the kids what they wanted to do and they decided that wanted to take a bike ride. However, when they say bike ride it means that I ride my bike and they sit in the trailer and tell me to go faster.
