Put Down That Rock

Last Sunday my friend Michelle who is also my pastor’s  wife spoke along with her husband at a Women’s/Men’s Day program at the church they grew up in. My husband and I attended the service and  I could have sworn that she wrote her words just for me.

She told the story of God asking a woman to take three rocks to the top of a hill. Of course she agreed and went on her way. Along the way she meets a friend and tells them where she is going. The friend  asks her to take a big stone up the hill for her. To make a long story short by the time she gets three-quarters of the way up the hill she has filled her cart with everybody’s rocks and can’t go any further. She begins to cry and God comes to see what is wrong. He asks her what is in the cart and she explains what happened. He goes over to the cart and dumps it out leaving the three rocks he gave her to begin with. She is relieved and goes on up the hill with her rocks. Michelle closed by saying ladies stop picking up everybody’s stuff, just worry about your own.

So this week I’ve said to myself are those my rocks or do they belong to somebody else? Concentrate on your own stuff it’s enough!
