Can you see how it is bigger than just the chocolate or the lesson? Doesn't the Bible tell us to do unto others as we would have them do unto us?
I am always amazed and awed when I read in the Genesis where it says that God created man in His image. (Gen 1:27) Wow! To be made in the image of the Ultimate Creator- who spoke into being light, form, beauty and breath! No wonder modern craftivists out there today say that man has an innate need to create, whether that is in an auto shop, a kitchen, behind a computer screen or with brush in hand. Some also say that it is especially evident in little children.
See for yourself:
Thank you, Miss Mason for reminding us that this process of making something, using our hands, is about much more than just ourselves. Let's not forget to use the gifts God has blessed us with to reach out to others and raise up a generation who will leave behind a legacy!
How are you teaching this to your children?
