Giving Thanks for the Fleas

Posted · 2 Comments

I’m about to give a spoiler to the incredible book, “The Hiding Place” by Corrie ten Boom. Many of you read this in school. It’s the story of a Dutch Christian woman who was arrested by the Nazis and imprisoned in a work camp for hiding Jews in her house. I don’t know how I’ve lived this long without reading it.

The book offers so many lessons for us on justice, deliverance, hope, and faith. But this post is about one lesson in particular that Corrie and her family teach us through their story: How to be thankful for the fleas. So, here’s the spoiler.
