Watch your building!

 
For we are laborers together with God: you are God's husbandry, you are God's building.  1 Corinthians 3:9
 
In 1999 I engaged a brother in  church to build a house for me based on his and other's attestation of honesty and skill.  However, he had been using improper combinations of sand and cement in the foundations and walls; due to greed, as he was diverting funds from the project into a personal program. Upon close inspection, I discovered that the foundations had not been properly built and cracks were showing up between the walls and the pillars, rendering the house in its form unsuitable for dwelling in - leading to a discontinuation of that building program.
 
It is not our mistakes that define who we are; it is how we recover from those mistakes. - Bo Bennett 

We should continue to improve ourselves daily.  King Amon lost out by not watching what he was building.
 
If a building looks better under construction than it does when finished, then it's a failure.  -    Doug Coupland 

For we know that surely this our bodily house that is in The Earth will be destroyed; but there is a building for us that is from God, a house which is not by the work of hands, in Heaven for eternity.
2 Corinthians 5:1
 
God is building you into the image of Christ as you allow Him to build you for His purposes.
 
Note that you and I are builders, you need to plan for how you build your life. The quality of your preparation and God's help determines the quality of your output in every facet of life. Are you a master builder like Paul? In Economics? financial matters? parenting?  spiritual builder? etc. Jesus was a master builder. God has ordained you to be an effective builder. Our Lord Jesus Christ said 'as my Father has sent me even so I have sent you'. Plan for alternatives/backups in case of failure, - failing intelligently,  use the best of inputs (hay, wood, stones, iron, gold etc). Are you building with gossips? backbiting? good words? are you building with eternal materials?
 
“Faith is building on what you know is here so you can reach what you know is there” - Cullen Hightower
 
But you, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Jude 1:20
 
Watch your building and build for eternity! Peace!
