Builders have Greater Value than Buildings
I was recently at a dedication ceremony for a sports medicine and community center built by a church in the sprawling suburbs of Dakar. It was incredible to see the community's support through speeches from the local leadership, but one piece of the worship service that they held before the official ceremony was especially touching. The ministry not only honored the architect for the design, but also each construction worker, from painters to masons to metal-workers and carpenters. They emphasized that the builder has greater value than the building, recognizing each by name and presenting a special gift to honor them individually.
May we remember in all that we do to honor and love people, sharing with them the great love of our Father!
