A friend recently told me a story about a man whose car had run into a ditch. He needed help, so he found a farmer and asked if the farmer would use a horse or
mule to help pull the car out of the ditch. The farmer said that he had only one mule, Dusty, and that the mule was blind. "But," said the farmer, "we can try."
Dusty, the old, blind mule, was taken to the ditch and hooked up to the car. Then the farmer yelled out, "Pull, you mules! Go Dusty, Sammy and Billy!" Sure enough,
the old, blind mule pulled the car out of the ditch.
The man who owned the car thanked the farmer but had one question. "Why did you refer to Sammy and Billy when there was only one mule?"
"Oh,” said the farmer, "Dusty couldn't have done it if he thought he had to do it by himself."
God never intended Christians to minister and live by themselves. He put us together.
For most of us, there is a huge gap between what God calls us to do and what we think we can do.
Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
Suggested Bible Reading
As you pray …
Thank God for His power, love, and faithfulness.
Praise Him that He can move you forward from any failure.
Ask for His grace that in your weakness, He might be strong, all for His glory.
