Recently, while watching an ice carving demonstration during a cruise vacation, I couldn’t help but notice the parallels between what the block of ice experiences by the hands of the master ice carver and what a Christian experiences by the hand of God.
As you watch the video pay close attention to the part of the activity where the assistant cruise director asked people to try and guess what the ice carver is making. All manner of guesses came from the audience as people thought they knew what the ice carver was making. As the carver continued his masterful job the block of ice slowly begins to take shape and eventually the image became crystal clear just as the master carver saw it.
Sometimes as Christians we encounter people who think they know who and what we are by only seeing a short segment of our life.
Just remember God’s not through with any of us yet and know that we are all on different paths and have different gifts in the body. As saints we need to believe the best in one another and treat each other as we would want to be treated.
Mat. 7:12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
