Shaping Down Here
His grief was multiplied by the sudden death of his
precious wife. The only thing he had left was his
faith, and it was weakening.
One day he was combing the neighborhood looking for
work. He stopped to watch some men who were doing the
stonework on a church building. One of those men was
skillfully chiseling a triangular piece of rock. Not
seeing a spot where it would fit, he asked, "Where are
you going to put that?"
The man pointed toward the top of the building and
said. "See that little opening up there near the spire?
That's where it goes. I'm shaping it down here so it
will fit up there.
Tears filled this good man's eyes as he walked away.
"Shaping it down here so it will fit up there" gave new
meaning in his difficult situation.
