BE ONE BY NATALIE GRANT
My 18-month old daughter was trying to stick two Lego blocks together.
Unfortunately, they weren’t lined up just right, so no matter how hard she pushed, they simply fell apart when she pulled her hands back.
Trying to truly connect with another human being can be a similar process.
As a Christian, if you want to share the hope you have in Jesus, you can’t do it with brute force. If you want to share hope in a way that somebody will embrace, you can’t just apply pressure and expect a connection to happen.
Instead, we have to find the right angle.

So I have an 8th grader....and I don't know how you felt about Middle School, but me? It was your classic awkward season of life. I sat down with my daughter yesterday and we read through this article together. Honestly, she rolled her eyes at the suggestion of going through it together, and silently nodded through it, but she gave me a big hug last night and said "thanks for the talk today Mom." There is some good stuff in here!
I have a new Pinterest board! If you want to follow along or share some mom tips or recipe ideas with me, I LOVE that!

As I pulled up to the grocery store, I scanned the parking lot for a shady spot.
There was only one, and it had been taken. In fact, there was only one tree in the entire lot, offering just enough shade for one space… and the man walking from his vehicle had a smile on his face. Well done, sir.
I looked at that tree, and realized that it wasn’t bothered by the sun and heat like I was.
In fact, it wasn’t working hard to keep that little parking spot shaded. It was just doing what trees do; connect with the sun and soak up all that glorious sunshine. The fact that it provided shade was just a natural part of that process.
