So, yesterday I was making chapatis with my daughter. She found me making them, and helped in the rolling and spreading as I fried them. At some point she sat down, saying how good it was to rest.
I told her to rest, that she needed a break. I knew she needed it.
And then it hit me. We are Christ’s workmanship, created to do good works (Eph.2:10). We work with Christ. The main job is His, and He’s allowed us the privilege of being a part of it. We can afford to take a break as He carries on with the work. Because yes, I was going to finish making all the chapatis, whether or not she helped the whole way.
