Daily Capsule - Fr. Francis Afu

Capsule for the Day
I have learned so much about life from my little Toyota Corolla. From day one, I learned the hard truth... "if you want to get enough juice out of your car, then keep in touch with Toyota". Initially, I felt it was a marketing strategy, but as time passed by, I came to appreciate the hard truth.
I need Toyota. It is not enough to buy a car from Toyota. I have to be in touch with Toyota. I have to seek their advice on their technology. I have to take my car to them for regular service. If I think I know it all and I don't need Toyota, then I may end up ruining my car. Toyota knows my car.
I don't know my car as much as the manufacturers know. In the same vein, I don't know Francis Afu as his Creator knows him. Any knowledge I claim to have of Francis Afu is limited. I need God. I need my Creator to know myself and to live life to the full. Without Him, I may ruin my life.
