Construction projects take a lot of planning. No one decides to build a house because they have seen a house and have some boards lying about. Meeting the physical needs of babies allows thier bodies to be built. Constructing a life is more than growing a body. This blog is for those who are passionate about building lives in Christ.
Serving others is a great way to build the body--and our faith. Serving is simply a scaffolding on which to watch the Lord at work.

How is your eyesight?
The natural world offers amazing glimpses of the Creator. When God spoke the world into being, a part of His very self was represented in everything. Eyes exercised to see Him bring amazing blessings, even life itself! God is always present, omnipresent; we need to learn to see Him. When I received my first pair of eyeglasses, I was amazed at the vibrancy and detail of the world around me. Tools that correct weaknesses are valuable. But some vision problems simply require a bit of ‘eye exercise. Focus, dimensional depth and attentiveness issues diminish with a bit of intentional eye exercise. Our spiritual eyesight is improved in the same ways: corrective aids and disciplined exercise.

And today's piece: Is Christianity Any Good for the World?
Perception and reality often are poles apart. The impact of Christianity on the world is a prime example. The tendency to perceive Christianity as negative and limiting is rampant. Increasingly, the world reacts to Christianity as a negative, often trying to silence it. Yet there is transformational power in Christianity! In fact, volumes have been written on the realities of life transformed by Christian thought. As we celebrate how our faith has changed the world, we gain confidence in its power to continue to change the world!
