Genesis 32:1-33:17; Psalms 1:1-3:8; Matthew 18:15-35

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

The little boy looked up with a tear-stained face. “I was trying to draw something for Grandma, but I can’t do it! I just made a mess”. Without a word, his artistic teenaged sister picked up his paper and began to add her own strokes. When she showed her brother the final picture, he was amazed. She had taken his “mess” and made it into something beautiful! What a lovely picture of what the Lord does for us. He takes all things, even our messes and makes them work together for our good and His glory! —Lynn Shatford

All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife
But He made something beautiful of my life. —B. Gaither
