Get Your Own Dirt
In this day and age, the world does absolutely everything in it’s power to deceive people by making them feel they don’t need God and they can do it all on their own. Which is absolutely false and is a terrible lie from the deceiver himself, the devil.
Always remember, that we cannot and we will never be able to do anything without God. The following is a wonderful little story that exemplifies this truth. Enjoy!
God was once approached by a scientist who said, “Listen God, we’ve decided we don’t need you anymore. These days we can clone people, transplant organs and do all sorts of things that used to be considered miraculous.”
God replied, “Don’t need me huh? How about we put your theory to the test. Why don’t we have a competition to see who can make a human being, say, a male human being.”
The scientist agrees, so God declares they should do it like he did in the good old days when he created Adam.
“Fine” says the scientist as he bends down to scoop up a handful of dirt.”
“Whoa!” says God, shaking his head in disapproval. “Not so fast. You get your own dirt.”
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
