This last Christmas our little seven year old boy was asked to light the Advent Candle at our church—pretty big deal for him.


He was very excited and little nervous.


What cracked me up, he got in the car after they’d asked him and he said, “Dad, I’d like to do it, but I don’t have a match.”


He was very concerned about not having the resources.


The funny thing is I can relate to him because sometimes when you invite me to do something with you I’ll think I don’t have that talent, I don’t have the skills, I don’t have what it takes.


Playing Tennis comes to mind.


Yes it does.


Friend, think about that in your own marriage. What are the things you might just instantly resist because you don’t think you have the resources? Your enthusiasm and willingness may be the only resource you need.
