Bible Lessons and being alert

Originally published as a Web Original on March 31, 2014

When I was in high school, back in the days when gas was around 60 cents a gallon, my friends and I would regularly cruise around town in my parents’ old 1970 Chevy Caprice. My friends and I called it the old Blue Bomb. It took us everywhere, even though the carburetor would stick, and I would often have to open the hood to stick a pencil in it to get it started. I remember we would often combine the loose change in our pockets and put in a dollar of gas to pay for what we used. We had a regular circuit we would take around town that included driving around the subdivisions and areas where friends lived to see if anything was “happening.” Those were the days!

Those were also the days when I started to read and study regularly the weekly Christian Science Bible Lessons. One particular week during this time, there was a Lesson that I found very interesting and thought about quite a bit. And to this day, I have never forgotten what I learned from it.
