I am not very good at puzzles – they require a fair amount of time and patience, not to mention putting pieces in certain places. You cannot force a piece to fit where it does not belong and if you are tempted to cut it so that it will fit, you will unleash a domino effect that will completely destroy the puzzle. The beauty it will have been meant to provide to the viewer will be less appealing.

This picture is too often what happens in the church. People are plugged in where they don’t belong, doing things they’d rather not do and having no life or purpose in the process. We essentially are cutting the puzzle piece of the person, to fit a mold they don’t belong in. We have to launch each other to be busy doing what we were wired to do.
