You’re in Good Hands

Editor,

A basketball in my hands is worth about $19. A basketball in Michael Jordan's hands is worth about $33 million. It depends on whose hands it in.

A baseball in my hand is worth about $6. A baseball in Mark McGwire's hands is worth $19 million. It depends on whose hands it’s in.

A golf club is useless in my hands. A golf club in Tiger Woods’ hands is four major golf championships. It depends on whose hands in.

A rod in my hands will keep away a wild animal. A rod in Moses’ hands will part the might sea. It depends on whose hands it’s in.

A slingshot in my hands is a toy. A slingshot in the hands of David is a mighty weapon. It depends on whose hands it’s in.

Two fish and five loaves in my hands is a couple of fish sandwiches. Two fish and five loaves in Jesus’ hands will feed thousands. It depends on whose hands they’re in.

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse. Nails in Jesus Christ's hands will produce salvation for the entire world. It depends whose hands they’re in.

As you see it depends whose hands it’s in.

So put your concerns, your worries, your fears, your hopes, your dreams, your families and your relationships in God's hands because it depends on whose hands they’re in.
