Thought I’d share this interesting view from our classroom. As you peer through the window, there is a giant metal machine; it rests in this contorted stance. To me it’s reminiscent of the Star Wars battle machines that had the four really long mechanical legs. Except this creature sits quietly on big rotten wheels. Anyway, maybe I just have an over-active imagination.
The island is littered with junk like this. It insults the beauty of the place. The water is so pure, so crystal clear you can see through it like a swimming pool. But more often than not, what you see is rusted metal, machinery and junked rubber tires that rest on the ocean floor. It can be frustrating at times because you really want to enjoy the beauty, but with it comes all this junk no one bothered to remove. Hmmm…I think there’s a spiritual connection here…and in all seriousness there is. I think about it often. It takes work to remain a vessel for God to use. And it’s so worth it. The more junk we get out of our heart (some pastors refer to it as uprooting the weeds) then the more of God’s pure beauty can show through us.
