During a class assignment, a teacher asked her first graders to draw something for which they were thankful.
Some drew toys, others their parents or friends.
One reserved boy, Douglas, drew a picture of a hand with nothing else in the frame.
Most of the pictures were obvious, but the guesses about the hand were all over the place. The hand of a policeman directing traffic, a farmer raising crops, or even God for protection.
Later, when the teacher asked the boy about the image, he said, “It’s your hand, Teacher.”
She recalled the times she’d offered her help without thinking about it. Here’s how you hold your pencil. Other times, Let’s do this together. Even those times, Take my hand, Douglas. I’ll show you the way.
Whose hand would we draw? Would someone draw our hand?
Hebrews 4:16 says:
“Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
God holds out his hand to each one of us. It’s our duty to hold one hand to the Father and the other to those around us in need. We are to be the conduit that allows his blessing to flow from the throne to a hurting and lost world.
When God’s blessing flows to us, we must also allow it to flow through us.
