Matt 4:15-19 Two men owned homes on rocky property Although the boulders that covered the yards were beautiful and made a sturdy foundation, it was impossible to 9row grass on the property. The first man studied the rocks and found plants that would grow among them. He worked to carve faces in the hard stone. The second man laughed and said. "Plants do not grow in rock and this stone is too hard to carve. You are wasting your time. I will dig up the rocks and find the good soil to plant my grass." Spring arrived and the first man had colorful blossoms sprouting among smiling faces carved in the boulders. Everyone stopped to see the happy rock garden. The second man however, had a hole so deep the bottom was impossible to see. In our lives, we may feet the "rocks" are unmovable. This may be the case, but God has given each of us useful gifts to battle these times. A little "creative problem solving" may save us from a broken back and wasted time.
