What I saw that she didn't see though was that part of the spill had run under one of the legs of the table, and the only way to completely clean up the spill was to move the whole table. And if she had used the dish towel, she would have carried a sloppy drippy towel around the kitchen just furthering the mess.
How often do we do that to God? We see a problem (or percieved problem) and run to fix it yelling I WANT TO DO IT! Maybe in our spiritual immaturity or in our desire to "fix it" we overlook an even larger problem. Maybe we don't realize that trying to fix it would only create more of a problem.
Let's ask God today to show us how he would have us handle that problem(s) and ask for discernment whether or not it's even our problem to fix. Or, even better yet, lets be patient enough to sit back and let God work first.
