Freedom In Surrender

Freedom In Surrender Sermon Illustration

We can learn an important lesson about the spiritual life through the Chinese Finger Trap. It is constructed simply of woven paper, but when our fingers are inside it, the harder we pull, the tighter the trap becomes. The key to letting our fingers escape the trap isn’t to struggle but to relax. God’s grace often works like that: we relax and stop fighting, and his grace sets us free.
