"That wasn't me. I can do nothing. God did it." He replied.
"Well, you still did a good job."
"I can't take any pride in that. I am just a sinner, with no merit of my own."
"Right, You are just a tool in God's hand. Just like a hammer a carpenter used to build a house."
"Yeah, it's wrong to feel pride."
"Well remember, there you were in the hardware store, lying in a bin with all the other hammers.
When God reached in and grabbed a hammer to use building this house, he grabbed you.
True, its not because you were any better than the other hammers.
God could have used any hammer he wanted, but for this house he used you.
So feel good."
