I'm Building a Cathedral

I heard it said that back in the Middle Ages, a man was observing the building of a castle. One worker walked by with a cart, carrying some mortar. The observer asked, "What are you doing?" The worker replied, "Not much, just carrying some mortar." Another came by, carrying some stones. "What are you doing?" the man asked? "Oh, just carrying some stones," the worker replied. Then a third worker passed by, carrying some building materials. "What are you doing?" asked the man. The worker replied, "I'm building a cathedral." The difference between carrying some mortar and building a cathedral is the difference between saying, ?I just make contacts for my Sunday School class? and ?I?m reaching the world for Jesus.? How important do you see your part in the work of God? ? Copyright 2002 Steve Miller - All Rights Reserved
