How Do We Deal with A Carpenter King ~ Large and Small Cuts
Greetings Dear Reader,
In every piece of wood that becomes furniture, finishing, or art there is cutting. The carpenter must shape the wood to his design. He must remove what is not useful to that design.
There are large and small cuts made in this refining. It may be that the carpenter must reduce the lumber greatly from it rough form to form something small and useful. It may be that to be useful the lumber must remain large and rough. The carpenter knows what is needed to make the wood suitable to his purpose.
It may be that fine chisel work is required to make the work beautiful. Turning and shaping may seem to be taking away too much. The pile of shavings on the floor might appear to be much more than what is left of the piece. The carpenter knows what to take away and what to leave.
In dealing with a Carpenter King we need to understand that we are the wood. We will be shaped to his design. The cuts may be large, small, or both. The shaping might be speedy or take a lifetime. All I have to do is be shaped.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
