Make me a spoon

Have you ever compared your Christian service to silverware? All silverware is made to serve but the different pieces serve in different ways.

Forks stab: "This is mine," they say. Bits of meat, carrots, pickles, salad and cheese, "This, this and this are mine," says the fork.

Knives cut: "Too big," says the knife. Slice, cut, chop, dice. Everything must change its shape to satisfy the whim of the knife. Nothing is right as it is. Everything needs paring down, carving or separating.

Spoons serve: Cereal, soup, peas - all the impossible foods can be handled comfortably by the smooth bowl of the spoon. Spoons say, "Here, let me help you. We can manage together."

Make me a spoon, Lord!
