When God withdraws He leaves a space for us to move into:
-to give love,
-to share in the work,
-not just leave it all for Him to do.
When this happens we see who will help and who will not.
"'They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on the shoulders of others, but they themselves are unwilling to lift a finger to move them.'" Matthew 23:4 (NRSV)
