Naturally, every digging on a stony ground is with great difficulty. You need to exert force to penetrate or make any impact on it. So, much noise is made and a lot of dust is raised in the process. You can only carve on a stone; simple writing will not suffice and even then it is not visible. How is your heart? Does God need to struggle over and over again before a little change can occur in your life? Are you always in the attitude of self-defence? Do you only rejoice when you are heard and when your own opinion carries the day? Do you insist on your own preconceived ideas? Do you seek to bend even the bible to suit your peculiar opinion?
