Read Psalm 127

Khaki shorts, no shirts, towels hanging out of their back pockets.  Making pass after pass over the back yard – one pushing a Honda, the other a Fisher Price.  Our preschool aged son used to love to “help” his daddy mow the lawn.  Of course, Dad had to be extra careful since his helper easily got underfoot and in the way.  Truth be told, he could’ve done the job a lot faster alone.  But there was something about letting that little boy help.  A relationship.  A teaching moment.  Preparation for the day a bigger job would come.

“And God said, “Let there be light: and there was light.’”  (Genesis 1:3)  He didn’t need help back then;  He did it all by Himself.  Still can.  Yet He invites us to take part in His work. For a relationship.  A teaching moment.  Preparation for the day a bigger job comes along.  We get to be a part of something so much bigger than anything we could orchestrate on our own, and He does the heavy lifting.
