When the students at Gilgal needed to make an extra room and decided to build it themselves, they did not expect to witness a floating axehead! In this story we read about a miracle where a lost and sunken axehead floated to the surface of the water!
We have all lost things, and I’m sure many of us have turned to God to ask Him to help us find those things. God cares enough about the little things in our life to get involved and help out.
As a parent, this is a reminder to care about the “little things” that are important in my children’s life and to be involved. If lost things aren’t too small for God, then paying attention to a story, or playing a little game for a few minutes should be important for me to step away from the “busy” and to engage in the little things too.
p.s. Yes, I know, a very different take the story, and more for the parents this week 😉
