What if someone were to film a documentary on your hands? What if a producer were to tell you a story based on the life of your hands? What would we see? As with all of us, the film would begin with an infant fist, then a close-up of a tiny hand wrapped around mommy's finger. Then what? Holding on to a chair as you learned to walk?...
Were you to show the documentary to your friends, you'd be proud of certain moments: your hands extending with a gift, placing a ring on another's finger, doctoring a wound, prepaing a meal....And then there are other scenes....Hands taking more often than giving, demanding instead of offering....
Oh, the power of our hands. Leave them unmanaged and they become weapons: clawing for power, strangling for survival, seducing for pleasure. But manage them and our hands become instruments of grace-not just tools in the hands of God, but God's very hands.
