Life lessons from jigsaw puzzles

Life lessons from jigsaw puzzles

Our Lord Jesus often used materials on earth to illustrate things in heaven. These are often called parables. As a Christian I have my struggles and still do. As a human I also have what we humans think and act.I heard an illustration says when you look at a picture, which one do you look at first? The answer to that is ourselves first. We often think of ourselves first. We developed or taught to be number one or me first.

Jesus taught to love the Lord, our God with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our strength and with all our soul, And to love our neighbor as ourselves.For the longest time, loving others is hard for me because self gets in the way.

This is where the jigsaw puzzle helped me.In the puzzle, pieces came in various forms , shapes, colors and shades. Every piece is important, or needed (no one wants to miss some parts).There is no me first first because the puzzle can start anywhere (preferably the edges). If we question God why we are not getting the breaks, then learn from the pieces. They are ready and waiting to be called as long as they end up in the picture. The assembled pieces show we need each other.

God holds our lives, we need to keep trusting Him. He alone can assemble us like those jigsaw puzzles.
