Bow and Arrow

The boys were playing this afternoon with a bow and arrow. However, they started with a huge lesson to learn! One of them had the Bow and the other had the arrow - they were stuck. Neither of them wanted to release their 'toy' and so they were at a crossroads... how do I shoot an arrow with no bow? How do I pull the bow if I have no arrow to shoot?

Lesson 101 - The Art of Sharing!

As soon as their figured that out, they realised they could both play and both have fun!

Are we like that sometimes? We have something - someone as something else. If we combined our 'gifts' we could do something awesome, but instead we hold tightly onto our 'thing' and neither party wins!

1 Corinthians 9:10 - Surely he says this for us, doesn't he? Yes, this was written for us, because when the plowman plows and the thresher threshes, they ought to do so in the hope of sharing in the harvest.

Living in Grace,
