We Are All Under Construction

Posted by Pastor John Lewis on

This is the time of year when there’s lots of road construction going on everywhere. Years ago Billy and Ruth Graham were driving along a highway, where there was lots of construction and lots of orange barrels. They were crawling along at 10 mph, when they finally came to the end there was a bright yellow highway sign that said, “End of constuction – thank you for your patience”.   Ruth leaned over to Billy and said, “That’s what I want on my gravestone someday.”  And it is. 

When you think about it, all of us are under construction, and all of us could use a little more patience. Maybe there’s someone you could show a little more patience to.  Maybe someone at work, maybe someone in your neighborhood – but in the end, remember God’s been patient with us.  We need to be patient with others.
