Words of Wisdom

An excerpt from The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom that has made me think about my own life and my relationship with Heavenly Father.

“Will you carry it [a bag] off the train, Corrie?” he said.

I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.

“It’s too heavy,” I said.

“Yes,” he said. “And it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It’s the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it. For now, you must trust me to carry it for you.”

Just something to think about...
