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 dont 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 againbut 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 Gods 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).
