under construction


colossians 1:10
“that you might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.”

our finn loves bob the builder. we watch this one episode over & over. the point is the three phases of a worksite. FOUNDATION, CONSTRUCTION & COMPLETION

while watching this for the one hundredth time I came to the realization of the metaphor of our lives & the parallel to these three principals. what happens in our life depends on where we lay our foundation. that will determine what type of construction goes on from day to day. then at the hour of completion it will mean everything.

where is our foundation?

during the day after day construction are we joyful in all things? (1 thes.5:16)

when things get set back on our jobsite or there is a unexpected change order how do we handle it?

upon the day of completion will we be ready?

philippians 1:6
“being confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

one of my favorite women is ruth graham. her headstone on her grave says it all "end on construction- thank you for your patience"
