The Right Tool

I was baking cookies today and as I was dropping rounded teaspoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet, I was thinking how messy this is since I use my finger to aid in the process. Then I remembered the medium scoop I had purchased from Pampered Chef. I purchased this gizmo to reduce the amount of mess and time it takes me to put the dough on the cookie sheet. After I located it, I put it into action and cleanly and efficiently finished the task.

Then it occurred to me that when life gets messy, I reach for the only tool that can equip me to handle stress and endure hardship. I reach for my bible, the word of God.

17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Ephesians 6:17,
