I think that any great thing that is built for God starts within.
I watched a video recently that explained that the average Cathedral in Europe took over one hundred years to build. Which means that the average worker never got to see the finished product. They went to work each day knowing that something good was coming for others. Think about it, we all will go home one day, and we will leave something behind. What are you building? To become a builder, you must first start within. What must I adjust, or “turn away” from to put my life on a real position of growth in Christ? This is freedom. Our freedom to choose our priorities is our greatest power.

A retired preacher named Jerry Croft told me a story that hit me. I want to share it with you:
He said, I was in Germany in 1958 and I got the orders from headquarters that I was going home. He said, “When I arrived, I walked across the yard and could see momma in the kitchen making biscuits…” He paused, a tear came to his eyes and said, “Sooner or later we all get the call from headquarters to go home.”
He’s right. What are your priorities? What are you building while you are here?
We all go home,
