Much to our disappointment, this miraculous transformation never lasted. The scorching Australian sun would inevitably lick them dry within minutes. With the moisture seared out of them, they would return, Cinderella like, to their original form.
God’s Word says that when we become adults we are to put away childish things. Yet something draws us back to the dirt. We scratch about, looking for the precious pleasures of life: a fulfilling job, plenty of money, a good time. We pour all of our energy into these things, so much so that they appear to glisten with joy, just as the worthless stones of my childhood gleamed with water. But it always fades away. Eventually, the dream job is lost, the money disappears and the good times crumble at our feet.
In our own might and under our own influence, all we will ever dig up from life are worthless rocks. It is only in Christ that we can find true fulfilment. He is the ultimate fulfiller of life, the one who “fills everything in every way” . He Himself is the pure gold of life that we are searching for.
