The simple 10 piece children’s variety, even I can do those…
but the ones with a 1000 pieces…
can be challenging to say the least.
Sometimes I also struggle at bringing all the pieces of a project together,
just as I would a puzzle.
A piece that appears to be the right one can turn out to be the wrong one
even if you try to shove and squeeze it into place.
It needs to be a good fit.
What are you a part of?
Are you on a team?
Do you serve as an employee to a big firm?
Are you a member of a family unit?
Or do you feel more like the puzzle piece being shoved into a place that you do not belong?
I serve in many areas of leadership and it is not always simple to bring all the ingredients that will eventually result in a group that works in harmony for the common good of the goal;
a “job well done”.
But when a project or a puzzle comes together,
with all the pieces joined together in prefect fit…now that is something to behold.
Matthew 25:21, “The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’(NLT)
I want to hear those words!
I want to be a piece that fits and helps to produce the end result, the final project…
the job well done because we worked together…
all fitted and joined together in prefect harmony.
I want by soul to be stirred up to get the job completed and well done…
Don’t be the missing piece…
Romans 12:4-5, “We have many parts in the one body,
and all these parts have different functions.
In the same way, though we are many,
we are one body in union with Christ,
and we are all joined to each other as different parts of one body.” (GNT)
