“For you were formerly darkness, but now you are light in the world; walk as children of light... trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.” Ephesians 5:8 & 10 (NASB)
Picking strawberries was the last thing I felt like doing after a busy week as a counselor at teen camp. But they glistened in the sun and let me know that the birds and bunnies would gladly take my place if I didn’t. I groaned at the thought of how many there were and how long it would take. A gentle prodding from our Lord reminded me that it was, after all, my idea to plant them and my enjoyment to eat them.
