Giving credit, where credit is due!
1 Corinthians 3:10-11, 16-23 3:10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building on it. Each builder must choose with care how to build on it. 3:11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ. 3:16 Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? 3:17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy that person. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.
We are indeed as Christians the builders of God's kingdom, we keep it growing, restructuring, retooling, and reordering it. However it is God who made the building materials, the builders and laid the foundation. So we ought not think to highly of ourselves but give credit where credit is due. Today give God our creator, sustain-er & redeemer credit for all the earth and everything in it including you.
Dear God enable us to see your creation and marvel at you perfection in all things, so that we may better understand how unique we are and give you the ultimate credit, glory, and praise. Amen.
