What do we build?

I just came back from a business trip to Chicago. It was a fascinating place to visit – busy, crowded, buzzing with energy. There were a myriad of concerts to hear, dozens of museums to see, ice-skating in the park, lights…and action.

I even rode an elevator to the top of the Sears Tower. Sears & Roebuck built it in the mid-1970s and then had to sell it for financial reasons not too long after the building was complete.

As I looked out over the various skyscrapers and patchwork array of buildings, I wondered how many people were just going through the motions. Though there were buildings on top of buildings on top of buildings, what was the foundation for most of people’s lives?

I think we often run around being ….busy. We build our lives on schedules and things we deem ‘necessities’. In truth, there is nothing wrong with a schedule or all the little things we add into our lives to increase the usual chaos of an hour, but God calls us t make sure our heart is in the right place and our motivations are in the right spot.

To we build our lives to show off ourselves or to point to God? What’s the foundation of a good, Godly building? Check out Psalm 127:1

Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.”

May we give God our hopes and dreams and pray He is the cornerstone for the foundation of the house of our lives.
