The Privilege

I love this pic. Middle Sister is stirring the eggs for our breakfast burritos, and she has Little Brother on her hip, giving him a turn at the bowl.

Obviously, she didn't need his help. But she allowed him the opportunity to help and get involved in the task.

Of course, he loved it.

I just love her heart.

And it reminded me of Christ.

You know, He doesn't need us. He has been doing fine for all eternity without us.

I noticed this Scripture while reading The Attributes of God by A.W. Pink:

"Below the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity. To whom then will we liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him" (Isaiah 40:15-18)?

Yet He loves us, sustains us, and even gave Himself for us.

Then He lets us get involved in what He is doing.

He invites us to value what He values, care about what He cares about, and then calls us to get involved in the task.

We get to "stir the eggs."

What a blessing. What a privilege.

Ni Hao Y'all
