Oil Changes

A friend of mine tried to buy a used car out of the classified ads. He asked the seller if it was a good car. She replied, “Why yes, it’s been 50,000 miles and I haven’t even had to change the oil yet.”

Many of us procrastinate on oil changes. For those who change their own oil, it might be because you can never find the time. And, if you’re like I once was, you believe only people who have had a mechanical bypass pay to get oil changed.

My thinking about this changed when a discount store opened in our town offering oil changes while you shop for about $5 more than the cost of the material if I did it myself. I also determined an oil change took one hour from when I began changing clothes until clean-up and disposal of the oil was completed.

Remember, God holds us accountable for money and time. Buying time by hiring out certain jobs redeems the time.
