Living Stones

I am truly blessed to be able to call You, Father. You love me in a multitude of ways. You are patient and understanding, merciful and gracious. Help me to always be grateful and may I always strive to be like You. Amen.

1 Peter 2:4-5a (<<click here)

“…you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple.”

Lord, we have You as the cornerstone of God’s spiritual temple. But is a building made of one stone? No. If I, alone, place myself in conjunction with You, is that a building? No. A building is made up of a great number of stones. Lord, You and I can accomplish great things together but with all of Your children serving as stones together with You as the cornerstone, there is nothing we cannot do – the possibilities are endless!

I love people. I love working with people. There are many people at work, at church and, especially in my family, that make even menial tasks enjoyable when we go at it together. Sometimes working alone is extremely monotonous and time just drags. Working together can bring focus to get the job done – it brings motivation and direction.

Lord, help me to make the most of the opportunities I am given to build Your kingdom. And help me to never lose sight of the fact that everything I do at work, church or home, it all is a part of building Your kingdom. If I’m putting out jewelry, or splitting firewood or sitting in a meeting at church, I am working to build Your kingdom. Lord, bless our efforts. Multiply them for Your glory. Amen.
