An Egg World Allegory

The Maker created Monday Egg for a very important reason. Monday just doesn’t understand it yet. Being an egg with arms and legs has its advantages. Monday can run like the wind and climb trees easily, but he is an egg. What happens when he cracks?

The Cracking of Monday Egg is the story of a cranky crow, a sick little girl, a kind squirrel, and Monday’s struggle to deal with his own crackability.

B.T. Higgins  
B.T. Higgins lives in the wild urban jungles of Alaska with his wife and four children. As you might expect, he is an avid fan of long naps and noise-canceling headphones. He has been a garbageman, a propane technician, a teacher, a tutor, a musician and an exotic-bird-cage scrubber, but writing stories is, by far, his favorite job.



The Maker is good.
Think about it
A man stumbled out of the desert. His clothes hung in tatters, revealing skin burnt and blistered from the hot sun. He could barely see because of the harsh light bouncing off endless sand dunes. With his last remaining strength, he crawled to a pool of water with a few green bushes around it. Water. He had found water. He could hardly believe it. Maybe he wouldn’t die after all. He crawled into the water and drank.
Will this man live? That depends on one important thing. Is the water good or not? Pure water will save him. Tainted, bracken water will kill him. This is how I think about the question, Is the Maker good? If the Maker is good, then we are saved. If the Maker is not good, then we are lost in the desert without help. Thankfully, the Maker clearly shows his character in the Bible. What we read in the Bible demonstrates that the Maker is good, so we can be saved from the wilderness. 
Psalm 145:9  The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. (NIV)
Psalm 106:1  Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good: his love endures forever. (NIV)
Discussion Questions

When Monday was honest with himself, he knew the Maker was good even if his circumstances seemed to contradict it. Monday felt certain. (Chapter 21)
    Has despair ever caused you to doubt God is good?
    How has God reminded you that He is good?
    Where have you seen evidence of His goodness?
    How did you feel when you realized the Maker is good?
    In what ways did this understanding change your outlook on your circumstances?
