An Angel with a Measuring Stick

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: An angel came to the Lord with a measuring stick. He said, “I have measured your child and he is NOT growing.” The Lord responded, “Send him some trials.” Another angel came to the Lord regarding another person. He said, “I have measured your daughter and she IS growing.” The Lord responded, “Send her some trials.” What is the moral? Trials help you grow; they are like spiritual fertiliser. Trials also keep you on track when you are growing; they are God’s way of pruning a healthy plant. And since your Father has all wisdom, he knows the perfect time to stop the intensity. Have you thanked God in your trial? (My inspiration: Zechariah 2:1-2)
