I have a friend who has a Maltese that has an insatiable need to be held and snuggled. This dog will force itself on to your lap and position its head in such a way that you are surprised to find yourself petting it.
She, whose name is Molly, is not discriminating in whom she receives this affection from. Therefore, a visitor to this home will often be heard to say, “I am really good with dogs.” The visitor thinks that the bond has something to do with his or her canine skills.
I wonder how many times God chooses to do a work when I am present.
Do I appropriate credit for myself when God would have done the same thing through any surrendered servant?
I’m grateful that God used this simple picture to remind me of His amazing grace.
