If you have ever needed automobile work, you might have picked up on something. Those people in the service department...guess what...they don’t have all the answers. It’s true!
Sometimes - in broad daylight - they will reach beneath the counter and pull out…
A Reference Manual
Yep, that’s theirsecret. Next they will turn to the needed page. Place a greasy finger below the part. Then give you a quote on the repairs that will knock your socks off: Not in a good way.
Without that manual your auto would still be growing rust in the driveway. There is no way the service personnel can keep all that useful information in their heads.
And You Shouldn’t Be Expected To Either!
Pretend it’s early Saturday morning and you’re running behind (imagine that). You promised the youth group that you would do a morning service project, eat lunch, get the youth room ready for Sunday, and then have a devotional.
What are you going to do? Panic? Call it a day and head home, while hoping that no one shows? Or reach for your reference manuals filled with…
1,020 Tips, Tool, And Techniques...
You scramble and pull them off the bookshelf (your service counter). For the service project you turn to pages 54-56 of volume 1. In a flash you have ten all time greatservice projects to choose from.
Next you flip over to pages 33-35 in volume 2 and discover ten prime ways to spice up your youth room.
Finally...and you hear footsteps and laughter coming down the hall...you turn to pages of volume 2 and pick a wing-it devotional of the ten options.
The day goes smooth. Or at least as smooth as it can with a youth group. As the sun sets, you collapse. Through a sly opening in one eye you make out the dark blue cover of volume 1.
With a smile you turn to the table of contents and scan...ten counseling techniques...ten ways to involve parents...ten techniques to reach unchurched teens. You keep scanning because you know you have seen it before. Aha! Just what you need at the end of the day. Pages 150-152. Ten tips for recognizing burnout and what to do about it.
