Split wood

Psalm 24
A psalm of David.
1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.
The world and all its people belong to him.
2 For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas
and built it on the ocean depths.

I helped my Father-in-Law split some wood this week. It struck me that this tree was so well designed to be used by us humans in so many ways.

Fruit, shade, a place for a swing.

Then, homes, boats, and a place to sit.

Finally, heat, which is going to feel more and more necessary in the next few months in Minnesota!

The logs that had been cut split into smaller pieces so neatly, it was as if it were made for that very purpose. It was just beautiful to see the inner structure of a couple old oaks that had seen so much, but had died in the yard.

God made us just as beautifully.

We each have our calling and our gifts to be shared with others.

How will you split?
