Do you find it annoying when something or someone ‘gets under your skin’?
Well we could all learn a lesson from the oyster that turns an irritating foreign body into something beautiful – a pearl. I read this poem recently:
This tale has a moral – for isn’t it grand,
What an oyster can do with a morsel of sand?
What couldn’t I do if I only begin,
With all of the things that get under my skin?
Surely we need to give such annoyances to God, for He is ultimately in control of all that happens to us.
“God is working his purpose out (in our lives) as year succeeds to year”.
