March Sermon Illustrations

March 23, 2010

We are building every day,
In a good or evil way,
And the structure as it grows,
Will our inmost self disclose.

Till in every arch and line,
All our faults and failings shine;
It may grow a castle grand,
Or a wreck upon the sand.

Do you ask what building this,
That can show both pain and bliss,
That can be both dark and fair?
Lo! its name is character.

Build it well whate'er you do,
Build it straight and strong and
Build it clean and high and broad,
Build it for the eye of God.—Selected.
