The same principle works in multitudes of ways:
- A small fulcrum and a long lever can give a weak person the strength to move a very heavy object.

until the beautiful, well-built house split down the middle. I think I read once that the crack was ultimately about six inches in some places.

In the grand scheme of things, a tiny lamb would usually go unnoticed. At Christmas, we often think of the lambs as attending the scene in the stable, along with the cows and the camels. It’s easy to overlook the Lamb in the manger. Innocent, a baby child will grow to be announced as the Lamb of God, who will take away the sins of the world.. At His birth, this Lamb was viewed as a threat to a regional puppet “king.” Before He’s done, He will be accused as a threat to Caesar himself and hung on a cross to stop Him.
We pick up the story of Mary’s little Lamb this weekend at Stone Ridge Church. If a drip can split a house in two, this Lamb has no problem messing with the most powerful government of His day. If He could do that, He can do something pretty powerful with you and me, too! “Mary Had A Little Lamb” is our topic again this weekend at Stone Ridge Church. Please attend and invite a friend…you’ll be glad you did! Can’t be there? Catch the podcast!
