A few years ago, this video, “It’s Not About the Nail,” surfaced on YouTube. I find it amusing.
It depicts a supposed difference between men and women: that women like to (or need to) just talk about problems and issues (like going on about a nail stuck in your forehead), while men just want to “fix” it.
But this morning, I realized that it summarizes another, non-gender relationship; the one between God (the Creator) and humans (the Created).
(And I also recognize another symbolism in a nail being the physical object.)
