Let’s say you’re eating a bag of potato chips. You’re at the bottom of the bag, and there’s nothing but crumbs left.
If you’re like me, you don’t say, “Oh well, it’s just crumbs. Let me throw the bag away.”
But what you do is turn the bag into a funnel, hold the edge of the bottom of the bag, tilt the bag at your mouth, and then basically drink the rest of the chips.
Rather than throw the crumbs away, you’re determined to get the crumbs out that bag.
Likewise, as you’re determined to get the crumbs out that bag, so God is determined to get some good out of what you go through.
