Use Your Tool

“The hammer doesn’t build the house; the carpenter does.” -Brett Jones

Carpenters have specialty tools: a hammer to deliver impact, a chisel to cut and shape, and wrench to fasten loose ends. Just as carpenters work together to build a house with their tools: Christians serve together to grow the church with their talents. One might be called to speak in Sunday school, the other giving to missions, and another vacuuming the floors late Saturday afternoons. Jesus wants willing-servants to grow his kingdom. Use your tool.

Jesus says: Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me (John 12:26, NIV).
