Brick Building

If you're a mom, you know the daily mundane cleaning, cooking, diaper changing routine that can make you a little crazy some times.. Well, just when I happen to be going through one of these days.. a friend shared with me an analogy that she recently heard.. It goes something like this:

There are two men building a wall with bricks..
Everyday they pile bricks on top of each other one by one..
First man is asked, "What are you doing?"
And he answers, "I'm just building this wall with bricks..and I have to do the same thing everyday..and pile the bricks one by one.."
The other man is asked the same question, "What are you doing?"
He answers enthusiastically, "I am building a cathedral!!"

Same task. Different purpose. It's all about perspective right? Our daily chores may seem mundane...but what a difference if you take your focus off those things, and focus on the fact that you are "building a cathedral!"... God has us doing what we're doing for His kingdom and glory!
