After several months of waiting, our septic system at home is being repaired. I am actually watching the men work as I write this devotion! We experienced a leak in the system which let everyone nearby know that our septic line was not working - if you know what I mean! I think all of you know the purpose of a septic tank. It holds everything that comes from the shower, sink and toilet and distributes the waste water throughout a filter drain system in the ground.
I know, some of you are thinking right now...how in the world can this be a devotion and offer any spiritual lesson? Well, somehow I can find spiritual truth in most situations of life! So let's look to a verse in the New Testament written by the apostle Paul.
