Step by Step

I’ve decorated a lot of buildings, but never actually built one. No, that’s not right. I did hold some pieces in place while hubby put up a shed in the back! Still, I know this.

All building happens one stone or one brick at a time; one nail, one 2×4 or one sheet of insulation. Sometimes, during the struggle of building, it seems impossible, unending, a waste of time. Perhaps that’s because we started off all wrong.

  1. We need a building plan. (Genesis 6:15)
  2. We need the correct building materials. (Exodus 20:25)
  3. Has God blessed your plans? (Deuteronomy 8:14, Psalm 127:1)
  4. Do you have enough help to actually build the structure?
  5. Do you have the permission of the local building authorities? (Nehemiah 4:7-9)
  6. Do you have a solid foundation to build on? (Matthew 7:24)
  7. Do you really need it? (Luke 12:18)
  8. Have you counted the cost? Can you afford it? (Luke 14:28)

There is an easier build, my friends. 

But you, dear friends,  build yourselves up in your most holy faith.

(Jude 1:20)
