(From the back cover):

The Routing is a collection of weekly Bible-based tracts that were published by FCG in an effort to promote the Gospel within the factory. They gained popularity and eventually were distributed in five other work places under different mastheads. They were used as study guides in Sunday School in some churches. Volumes 7, 8 & 9 were produced from 2000 - 2003. They are thought - provoking devotionals geared toward both the lost and found.

The Fairfield Christian Group was a fellowship of Bible believing workers in a factory in Indiana from 1993 to the mid 2000's. It consisted of both management and labor (to include one CEO) of various denominations. They considered their work place their corporate mission field and accepted responsibility for the spiritual welfare of the collective, praying for those suffering loss, offering counseling and charitable donations.

Got gigabytes? When shopping for a computer, there are 3 main considerations: 1. What type of processor (CPU) it uses; 2. How much storage it has (hard drive, or HDD); 3. How much operating memory (RAM - Random Access Memory) it has.

A computer is just a machine that processes information. The more powerful your CPU is in megahertz (MHz), the faster it will run. The more storage on your HDD, the more data you can work with.

Data is measured in bits. Each bit is a digit, either 1 or 0. 8 bits, make a byte. 1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte. 1,048,576 bytes = 1 megabyte. 1000 megabytes = 1 gigabyte. RAM is measured in megabytes. The more RAM you have, the more data you can process at once.

So when people shop for computers, they generally try to get the maximum M Hz CPU, and maximum mega or gigabytes HDD, and maximum megabytes of RAM they can afford. Then those computers glitch on them. They lock-up, or lose files, or don't run software correctly. They get error messages all the time, and it costs money to fix.

People refer to other people as being smart or stupid. Often they suppose that a guy who knows a lot is really smart. Or a person who thinks really quick is smart. Or that a kid who learns slow is stupid. But actually, none of these are correct.

A brain is much like a computer. It merely processes information that God gives it. A person who knows a lot, is like a computer with a big HDD. That's intelligent. A person who thinks fast, is like a person with a powerful CPU, or a lot of RAM. That's witty.

But intelligent and witty people still do stupid things. They glitch. Like computers. The word "stupid" isn't in the Bible. The biblical meaning for "smart" is "experience pain" (Pr 11:15). The Bible distinguishes people as prudent, foolish, learned, and simple.

One who is simple, is uneducated (Pr 7:7). One who is learned, is educated (Is 50:4). One who is foolish, is one who makes stupid decisions (Pr 15:7). One who is prudent, is one who makes smart decisions, based on the data available to them (Pr 16:21).

Brainy people have a tendency to get cocky (1Co 8:1). Then they do stupid stuff (Pr 16:18, Ro 1:22). Glitch. Meanwhile, those who are simple, are not doomed to remain simple. God offers them wisdom, if they turn to Him (Ja 1:5), Absolutely Free.

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
