The other day I was shoveling our driveway. We have had extra helpings of snow this winter and we haven't kept up with snow removal. Under the layer of freshly fallen snow was a rather large layer of ice. I chipped away at the ice, tried to ply it up with the shovel and used a lot of elbow grease. I worked at it the ice for over two hours with the aid of two neighbor boys. We had cleared one fourth of the driveway.
The next day it was sunny all day and the snow was gone.
I wonder how many times I have tried to change myself, diligently worked and set goals. I have made charts and programs and expended lots of effort. How much more changed would I be if I spend more time with the Son?
