God and the Lexus?

so i was talking to a friend of mine the other day and she was telling me how she was having difficulty these days. she is very religious and i seem to be leaning toward spiritual so the conversation turned to God. she said that she wanted to just leave it all in God’s hands but that at times it was difficult to do so. in my infinite spiritual wisdom i gave her an example…God and a Lexus?

me: you know how a Lexus has the parking feature and you just let go of the wheel and it does it all for you?

her: yeah…

me: why don’t you look at this the same way and let go of the wheel. if you keep holding on or you grab the wheel midturn you’ll back into the car behind you…

her: did you just compare God to a Lexus

me: um yeah…i think so…

her: (silence)

thank God (no pun intended here) that she knows me so well and knows i meant nothing sacrilegious BUT i still think it was a really effective analogy…
