Effective Perspective - Just Because You Love Him

TL;DR - God doesn't need our help, He wants our help.

I was raking up grass clippings one Sunday afternoon. My daughter wanted very much to help.

She's 3.

She is not helpful when it comes to raking grass clippings. But she wanted to be where I was and help me do what I was doing. Just because she loves me.

I could have done the job much faster and easier without her help. But I love my daughter and I love that she wanted to help me. So I celebrated her imperfect help.

Remember the wedding at Cana? If not, here's the short recap:

  • Jesus went to a wedding.

  • They ran out of wine.

  • Jesus' mother Mary got Jesus involved.

  • Jesus had the servants fill six huge water jars with... water.

  • Jesus turned that water into wine.

  • Party on.

Read the story, it's cool, and there is a lot that can be gleaned from it. One thing sticks out to me this morning though.

Jesus did not need to have the servants fill the jars with water.
