"The Spirit is in him!" (27:18)
There is an old story, "Stone Soup", I remember reading to the boys when they were little.
A beggar asked alms at a lordly mansion, but was told by the servants they had nothing to give him. "Sorry for it," said the man, "but will you let me boil a little water to make some soup of this stone?" This was so novel a proceeding, that the curiosity of the servants was aroused, and the man was readily furnished with saucepan, water, and spoon. In he popped the stone, and he begged for a little salt and pepper for flavoring. Stirring the water and tasting it, he said, it would be the better for any fragments of meat and vegetables they might happen to have. These were supplied, and ultimately he asked for a little catsup and other sauce. When fully boiled and fit, each of the servants tasted it, and declared that the stone soup was excellent.
And as I looked into my vessel I could see floating on top amongst the ingredients God had put in, inedible items which were poison in my soup. Items served up on the platter of doubt by satan. Items which I had taken off the platter and put in myself, thinking they were needed to enhance the flavor. Sticks and decayed leaves of fear, insecurities, anger, bitterness, items of sin.
