The Little Construction Site,
So, it would be easy to focus on the big tall building or the bigger things in this picture which look like they are more powerful and more established, but the problem with that is that we miss the fact that everyone of us is called to be different. Some may be already a tall tower; some may be a smaller tower for a different purpose and some may have a crane there doing some work. But the thing is each one of them will need some work done at some point, or they will fall into disrepair. And another thing is that you don’t know where the one who has a big crane working on it actually came from. If I am not mistaken, that crane is working on a new building, which is being erected in the place of where something else once stood. It still has the same name, just a new look and very soon, it will stand like the other tall buildings, but maybe it will shine brighter because of its new paint job. So, don’t compare yourself to someone else, because you are unique, beautiful and wonderfully made. Each one of us is a work in progress, a work being made new. So, celebrate your difference and the beauty of you.
