A Challenge to Build | The Builder
I came across these words the other day and I find myself rolling them over again & again in my head. That’s normally a signal flare for me to share.
I pray you will not see them as mere words but rather, as a call to action.
I saw a group of men in my hometown,
I saw a group of men tearing a building down.
With a heave and a ho and a might yell,
They swing a beam and the sidewalk fell.
And so I said to the foremen “Are these men skilled,”
The type you would hire if you wanted to build?
And he laughed and said “Why no indeed,”
He said “Common labor is all I need.”
For I can tear down in a day or two
What it took good builders ten years to do.
And I thought to myself as I walked away
Which of these roles was I going to be play?
Am I the type that constantly tears down
As I steal other’s hopes and dreams to the ground?
Or am I the type that’s going to build with care,
To create something strong that will stand through the years.
Let’s Keep Building!!!
