Moldy Bread in God's Kitchen

Heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali said the following to a student seeking advice on making something of himself:

"Stay in college, get the knowledge. And stay there until you're through. If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.”

Do you ever feel like moldy bread in the kitchen of the Kingdom? Are you kind of smelly and useless? Don't give up. God promises fruitfulness and usefulness to all who hang in there and continue to grow in Him.

Ephesians 4: 11-15 (ESV)

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the  measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,…

I love you all,
