Build Wisely

construction worker

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire after many years of satisfying work. He told his employer of his plans to leave the business and live a more leisurely life with his wife. The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favour.

The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.

When the carpenter finished his work, the employer came to inspect the house and he handed the front-door key to the carpenter. "This is your house," the employer said. "My gift to you for years of good service."

The carpenter was shocked! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.

So it is with us. We build our lives one day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we'd do it much differently. But we cannot go back. Life is a do-it-yourself project, your attitudes and the choices you make today, build the "house" you will live in tomorrow. Build wisely!

Points To Ponder

Dog Logic
  • The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
  • There is no psychiatrist in the world like a new puppy licking your face.
  • A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
  • The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
  • Dogs love their friends& bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love & always have to mix love & hate.
  • Anybody who doesn't know what soap tastes like never washed a dog.
  • If your dog is fat, you aren't getting enough exercise .
