Bible Verse for Today
“According to the grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it.” (1 Corinthians 3:10)
Not many people have the opportunity to build for God. Some want to, but they don’t have the courage to. Yet, some have the courage and the privilege but do not build. Solomon had the opportunity to build for God, a possibility his father never had. Solomon built a temple for God. Someone can be a better builder, while another can be a wrong builder.

Anyone who does not build according to the plans of God is a wrong builder. Habakkuk 2:12 says, “Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed and founds a town with violence!” Something we should know is that we can’t build perfectly by ourselves.
We need God to be able to build according to his will. Psalm 127:1a says, “Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.”
We can build in different ways; everything we do involves building. We make ourselves by creating our character; we build other people by encouraging them to do good things. When we handle a project or lead a team, the way we handle it, we make. It takes God to help us build well.
Above these, let’s build faith in God in our hearts and make it a place for God to live.
