Proverbs 14:1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
Jeff and I were talking about the progress being made at our church building. It seems like the tearing down and destruction of it went very quickly ~ and with little effort. There was no real expertise needed in that part of it.
But now we are at the rebuilding stage....and let me tell you....it is slow going.
Those trained in specific areas have to come in to do the electrical, the flooring, the plumbing, etc.
Think about it....it doesn't take much to destroy our homes ~~ mean words, bad attitudes, an unfaithful testimony, setting a bad example instead of a good one.
But there must be effort put forth to BUILD our homes. We need to show love, be a Godly example, be consistent and compassionate.
Make sure that each day you're BUILDING a stronger home, not doing damage to PLUCK it down.
