Since the Lord is always speaking, and we just need to tune in, he decided to give me an analogy about silverware. As I was putting them away, he said "You are like this"..."My children are as silverware" He said we are his utensils, and that he uses us. Useless without their creators hands at work. He began to relate the five-fold ministry to each kind of utensil. He also spoke to me about our shininess and what he does to make us that way..he puts us in his washer...I love when the Lords speaks like this...it makes it so easy to understand. He is the same Jesus who told parables then, and I know he still likes to share new ones with us this day!
