When a structure is finished it is the final product that most people judge the craftsmanship by. It is the sturdy exterior, the stylish interior and the various colors and accruements by which most determine the value of the house.
But it is what one can’t see; the plumbing weaving under the concrete slab, the electrical wiring snaking through the walls, the metal rods and mesh imbedded underfoot, the hurricane clips invisibly giving security that make the beautiful exterior a thing of true worth…and will give it the endurance to survive the test of time and use.
As it is with buildings, so it is with people.
What lies underneath the polished surface of a person is what makes all the difference. As Jesus said, “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”
