The Right Shaped Peg

Liam was playing on the floor with his building blocks. Each block was dived into two with two cut out shapes of squares , triangles, circles or hexagons. There were pegs of similar shapes. Liam needed to fit the right shaped peg into the correct shaped building block. Once he’d assembled these, he was able to use it as a train or whatever his imagination wanted.

This reminded me of God. He doesn’t try to fit us as square pegs into round holes. He has made us and knows where our talents lie. He doesn’t ask us to do things of which we are not capable. It is our job to listen to Him and follow His leading; then we will be part of His successful ‘train’ working for Him.

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Jesus Christ to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
