USING OUR BURDENS
A biologist tells how he watched an ant carrying a piece of straw which seemed too heavy. The ant came to a crack in the ground which was too wide for it to cross. It stood still for a time, as though perplexed by the situation, then put the straw across the crack and walked over on the straw. If only we were as wise as that ant! We speak much about the burdens we must carry. But have we ever thought of converting our burdens into bridges, of having our burdens bear US up instead of our bearing THEM up? Paul teaches us about his “thorn in the flesh” and about boasting in our “weaknesses.” The promise is: “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” (II Cor. 12:9, 10).
