Do you remember when you were little and your mother may have been in the kitchen baking a cake? You would watch her in anticipation. You would watch her add flour, sugar, and vanilla. You would see her blend these ingredients together and your anticipation of how good that cake was going to taste would be so strong. If you were like me, you would keep going in the kitchen and maybe peek in the oven and see the cake start to turn brown on the top. You might then yell to your mother and tell her the cake was ready. But what would she do when she came in the kitchen? She would go in the draw, take out a toothpick, open the oven door, and insert the toothpick into the cake.Just because something looks done on the outside, it does not mean it is done on the inside.

Then what would happen at times? When she pulled the toothpick out of the cake, there would be dough on the toothpick, and she would tell you that the cake needed a little more time. What did you learn? Just because something looks done on the outside, it does not mean it is done on the inside. A lot of times when we look at ourselves we look done on the outside, but on the inside we need more work.
Help us continue helping others!
Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5 (NLT)
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
