Numbers 34:1-35:8; Proverbs 30:1-33; Luke 5:1-16

For we are labourers together with God. 1 Corinthians 3:9 The toddler stared up at the heavy glass door. “Come on, son”, urged his towering father. “Let’s work together!” And so, the pudgy hand of the boy and the strong hand of the father worked in tandem to open the door. “Good work,” the dad commended as they stepped through the doorway. Could the father have done the work without his child? Of course, but he delighted to work with his child, to encourage him along and, in the process, deepen their relationship. How wonderful that God is that way with us! He allows us, in our weaknesses and inabilities, to work alongside Him, and amazingly, longs to say to us “well done!” —Lynn Shatford

Emptied that Thou shouldest fill me, a clean vessel in Thy hand;
With no power but as Thou givest graciously with each command. —Maxwell
