God endowed us with something he gave to no other creature in quite the same way: the ability to creatively manipulate our world and our lives... the propensity to reach out and "touch someone" when we are lonely (or when THEY are)... and the spirit to raise our hands in celebration and praise. Or alarm. Like all His gifts, these Hands are merely tools until taken up and used, when they become either blessed instruments or the opposite. Or perhaps still worse... a waste of time and life.
