HOME UNDER CONSTRUCTION

 

A little boy named Danny lived with his family in a trailer.  One day someone asked him, “Don’t you wish you had a real home?”

 

Danny’ reply was wise beyond his years.  He said, “We have a real home.  We just don’t have a house to put it in.”

 

A house and a home are very different. A house is just a physical structure, made perhaps of brick or wood or stone.  It can be large or small.  It may not even have persons inside.  If a house does include persons, their relationships may lack love or commitment. 

 

By contrast, a home is a haven of shelter, acceptance, and unconditional love.  It includes at least one person.  In a home, each person’s value is unlimited, and the mutual commitment is eternal.

 

Any decent contractor can construct a house.  But only God can build a home.
