With All Your Weight
Once again I found the title for today from the minister's sermon. Rev. Harpster told the story of a missionary who was trying to communicate what 'to believe' meant when no such word existed in the native language. He finally hit upon the idea that when you trusted something to hold all of your weight, that was a concept that could be substituted for belief. For example "for whosoever 'put all his weight' on him" (John 3:16). In a more secular setting, it struck me that such belief and trust is required to venture out on a frozen lake. In doing so you trust the frozen lake with all your weight. This winter individuals have been a little hesitant to venture out until this weekend when the ice fishermen and skaters showed up.
