Patience And Love: We understand we cannot meet everyone’s hopes, needs, and expectations. A limited return to services can cause division between members, or between the church and the community. The TPC family needs to be ready to embrace imperfect decisions in an imperfect situation. Some will think that the church is being too stringent and others that it is not stringent enough. Please be patient and loving.

A Little Paper House

Posted by Robbie Andrassy on

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28

 

Recently, one of the students in Sunday School came up to me after class and triumphantly showed me the craft that he made in class. It was a little paper house that had Rom. 8:28 written on the roof. He looked up and handed me the well-colored but fragile structure. As I analyzed it he said rather commandingly, "I want to give that to you, but don't you chuck it!" That cracked me up. I looked at him and replied, "Don't worry, I always save things like this."

I feel like, in a humorous way, God was reminding me, "Don't you forget this truth! Don't you chuck it!" It was ironic to me that such a powerful verse was written on something so fragile. Our lives are like that little paper house—fragile, feeble, and finite. Yet, written over them is the promise that all things are working together for our good. That little paper house is the centerpiece on my kitchen table now because I need to be constantly reminded that no matter how transient my life and circumstances are, God is working everything in my life for my good and his glory. Remember, we’re not in control (and that’s a good thing!), but God is, and that is a most comforting truth in this “paper house” world.
