Rocks or Cathedrals?
Salt & Light Volume II, Issue 27 by D. Scott Prindle

"May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us: establish the work of our hands for us- yes, establish the work of our hands.
(Proverbs 90:17)

Roaming the house one afternoon, a little pamphlet called The High Calling of Our Daily Work, by Howard Butt, Jr. presented itself on the family room book self.

For the next few weeks Id like to share some of its insights.

Three stonemasons were building a cathedral when a stranger wandered by. The first stonemason was toting rocks to a pile near a wall.

"What are you doing?" asked the stranger. Cathedral "Can't you see that I'm carrying rocks?"

The stranger asked the second laborer, "What are you doing?"

"I'm building a wall," he replied.

A few steps away, the stranger came upon a third mason. "What are you doing?" he asked.

This worker smiled, "I'm building a cathedral to the glory of God!"

Same Jobs, Different Missions
How will you answer? Is your work a paycheck or a calling?

Any job, done to God's glory, proves the high calling of your daily work.
