It Goes Deeper Than The Hands

This is a story of a colored man who came to a watchmaker and gave him the hands of a clock, saying, "I want yer to fix up dese hans. Dey jes' doan' keep no mo' kerrec' time mo den six monfs." "Where is the clock?" answered the watchmaker. "Out at de house on Injun Creek." "But I must have the clock." "Didn't I tell yer dar's nuffin' de matter wid de clock 'ceptin' de hans? And I done brought em' to you. You jes want the clock so you can tinker with it and charge me a big price. Gimme back dem hans." And so saying, he went off to find some reasonable watchmaker. Foolish as he was, his caution is very like that of those who try to regulate their lives without being made right on the inside. And their reason for not putting themselves into the hands of the Lord is very similar to the reason the colored man gave.They are afraid the price will be too great. They say, "We only wish to avoid this or that habit." But the Master Workman says, "I can't regulate the hands unless I have the heart."
