Building A Life That Matters

May 9, 2012

My grandkids love to play with Legos. These small colorful building blocks capture their imagination for building forts, planes, houses, or whatever the instructions may call for.

Emptying the contents of the box onto the floor, my grandchildren begin to put the pieces together. But soon they think they don’t need to consult the directions. This eventually leads to a point when they realize that building according to their own instincts has resulted in a bad outcome. So, they break it apart and start over again—but this time they have a keen sense of how important the directions are.

Do you need the pieces of your life broken apart and put back together according to God’s directions? If you have Jesus Christ as your foundation, begin to follow His blueprint for living. Paul wrote, “Let each one take heed how he builds” on the foundation (1 Cor. 3:10-11). What is the blueprint? Value others above yourself by humbly serving them (Phil. 2:3-4), give generously of your resources to those in need (James 2:14-17), respond with love to those who have wronged you (Rom. 12:14-21). These are just a few of the pieces that God wants you to put together to build a life that is worthy of being His temple (1 Cor. 3:16).

Because of the grace and forgiveness that You have
shown me, Lord, I want to live a life that’s worthy of
knowing You. Help me to follow Your plans that
You’ve laid out in the Scriptures. Amen.
The Bible is the Christian’s blueprint for life.

Read: 1 Corinthians 3:9-17

I have laid the foundation . . . . But let each one take heed how he builds on it. —1 Corinthians 3:10
Bible in a Year:
Nehemiah 7-9

Hi All!

Well, Hmmmm ....

You Are Wise
Introspective and reflective, you think about everything and anything. Your mind never rests.
You are a soft-hearted daydreamer. You long for your ideal life.

You take care of yourself and those around you. You don't stretch yourself too thinly.
You don't accept apologies easily. Actions mean much more to you than words do.

You Are Ambitious
You are dominant and powerful. You always need to be in charge, and it's difficult for you to let go of control.
When you fall for someone, you fall hard. You are a true romantic and idealist.

You are goal oriented, both for work and personal self-improvements. You like having benchmarks.
You know what you want, and you're not quick to change your mind. You have strong opinions that are set in stone.

You Are Focused
You know what you want, and you know how to go after it. You feel equipped for whatever may happen.
You are good at putting things together and following directions. You stay focused.

You lay the groundwork for months or years before you act. You like to be completely and totally prepared.
You are a late bloomer, and you may be coming into your own right now. You're still figuring out who you are.

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...leftovers from PT Monday? Rest is good for you.

I’m printing out the last of my homework and heading home.

I warned a coworker (out sick yesterday) about the new stuff on our way home. She called and said I can go that way tonight, even if just to see what has happened since yesterday. I think I will chance it. Traffic should have thinned out some.

Back to cloudy once more and a really great chance of rain. But that's SOP for weathermen........if it rains it's because they told you so; if not no one remembers anyway.
