A crab fisherman once noticed something intriguing after a successful catch one day at sea.
As he hauled in the crabs, he divided them up in buckets almost filled to the brim. On his way back to shore, the fisherman glanced down and focused his attention on one of the buckets.
He watched as the crabs all tried to escape but to no avail.
What was so intriguing to the fisherman was the fact that when one crab would reach the top of the bucket, just as it was about to get over the tipping point ... another crab would grab it and pull it back in.
This was striking to the fisherman, so he decided to watch for a bit longer and he discovered that this was a pattern for the crabs.
His discovery was that when one crab was about to hit freedom, it was immediately pulled back in the bucket by the other crabs.
Did you know that God is far more creative or imaginative than any of us could ever be? This means that by being an image bearer of God, you were created to be creative! This is why when you and I were little, all we did was imagine! That is, until we grew up and people started pulling us back down into the bucket.
Advice: Don't let the other crabs pull you down.
It is time you crawled out of the bucket and into the sea.
And as you do, don't forget to kiss your crabs good-bye.
