If given a choice between a messy pile of miscellaneous items or a nicely placed set of items, which would you choose? Most likely, the nicely stacked set. You can see everything that it entails, every little detail, instantly. With the messy pile, you would have to take the time to search out everything it offers. It would be difficult to find everything out about the items; some items would be hidden, maybe some would even be damaged. Of course you would choose the nicely placed set over a mess, easy over difficulty, perfect over damaged. But how thankful I am that our God is not as we are . He sees the flaws we have, the difficulty, the damage, and instead of putting us aside because of our imperfections, he loves us, with the most perfect love that could ever exist.
1 John 4:10- This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
I am done with great things and big plans, great institutions and big success. I am for those tiny, invisible loving human forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, which, given time, will rend the hardest monuments of pride.
