January 7

It’s that time of year again! Stone crab season! As much as I love going to the beach and spending time on the water, being on an open boat in cold weather is not appealing to me. However, my husband and son love eating them so much that they’ll forgo their comfort just to collect those tasty morsels. They are quite a delicacy, especially when the rate per pound can go as high as twenty five dollars! Many people long to afford this edible crustacean, but we are able to enjoy them at very little cost. I may be stretching this a bit, but this is comparable to our relationship with God. Many people long for the kind of peace only given to those who trust in Jesus. This world is full of turmoil and only God can give us real peace. Peace, like the crab in a trap at the bottom of the ocean floor, is readily available. Jesus is like a trap full of crab; all you have to do is go, collect, and eat.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Jame 1:17
