Like a blade of grass

Have you ever considered a blade of grass? It appears so slight and quite lacking in power when the lawn mower passes over it. Does it seem fragile and unable to defend itself?

Some years ago, when I was teaching Sunday School to a class of third graders, we pondered together the little blade of grass. They were asked to picture themselves bending down, singling out just one blade and gently taking hold of it, not pulling it up or breaking it. In fact, they were ushered outside on this beautiful morning to do just that. Giggling, each reached down and selected his or her own treasure, having no idea what would be coming.
