We all need to examine ourselves from time to time. This list is a light-hearted way of checking ourselves out. Hopefully, we are all gold watches, offering our best to the Lord Jesus
Some people are like wheelbarrows–no good unless pushed.
Some are like canoes–they need to be paddled.
Some are like kites–if you don’t keep a string on them they will fly away.
Some are like footballs–you can’t tell which way they are going to bounce next.
Some are like balloons–full of wind and likely to blow up unless carefully handled.
Some are like glass: “fragile, handle with care”.
Some are like curly hair–they never straighten out.
Some are like scissors–they move to divide.
Some are like water—taking the shape of the moment..
Some are like glue–they try to unite.
Others are like a good watch, open-faced, pure gold, quietly keeping time and moving forward.
And when they came into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh. (Matthew 2:11, NIV)
Prayer- Father, help us be more than wheelbarrows, canoes or kites. The truth is we want to be precious gold in your service. Thank you, God. Amen.
