“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
–Abraham Lincoln

We invest our efforts, our time and ourselves in burdens.  Ministry is a burden that God places in your heart.  Even the minister is not privy to the outcome of a godly burden that he or she carries.  For good success faith is required to prosper godly burdens.  Locations may vary and people come and go but godly burdens remains.  It grows when attended!  It graduates unto greater levels as God strengthens your endurance in diverse trials.  Your patience to endure remains saintly, strong and firm until your resolve to support your ground as a warrior and as a soldier becomes unmovable.  We that take part in carrying godly burdens shall be tested whether we are true or false.

The maple leaf was one of numerous emblems proposed to represent the society. Speaking in its favour, Jacques Viger, the first mayor of Montreal, described the maple as "the king of our forest; ... the symbol of the Canadian people."  galleryhip.com

Spiritual Masterpiece

Our work shall be tried in the fire.  Our work should be a godly concern!  Man’s dominion crafts beauty from the majesty found in nature.  The colorful Maples in Canada are picturesque and monumental.  They grew great heights amidst the burning of brush and thistles set afire by gatherers on the ground that berries and nuts could grow and be harvested.  In becoming a spiritual masterpiece we shall need some burning that our true beauty is revealed.  When carrying a burden that God requires, fiery trials invade our work space when this happens our words must not contradict the burden we carry.  Our words must minister grace and not haphazard vain chatter.  A minister’s burden configures into God’s grand plan.  We are a part of a puzzle that has an inconceivable amount of pieces that only God knows.   Every pillar must carry the work that he or she bears.

If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.”

John 15:6
