3. Stones to tear down

Honestly, when times get difficult… instead of going back to all those stones where I can recall and rejoice in God’s work in my life… I go to the stones where I’ve experienced painful rejection and loss, utter discouragement and abandonment.

I go to those stones… out of bitterness, a lack of forgiveness, anger and self-pity.

These places are real, and they are places to pass through. But they are not places I should stop at. Andrew Lisi

4. The Greatest Stone

  • Jesus, the “cornerstone” of our building
  • Luke 22:19 And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.

Now it’s your turn!

  • Try and write up to three (not more for now) One is ok
  • This week, get some physical object to remember at least one of these
  • Keep it in a place where you will see it
