Under-construction-butI read the bible every day and a couple of nights ago, I stumbled upon this phrase to describe the rebuilding of the temple in Ezra 5:16.

“Under construction, but not yet finished.”

As so often happens when I read the bible, the words jumped off the page at me.

It’s a phrase that describes my present situation, and I hope yours.

You see, I may be 44 years old, but I’m still learning.

I’m still growing.

There are still a lot of mistakes to make along the way.

My level of influence is still on the rise.

I still have untapped potential.

God still has a lot of work to do on my character.

I haven’t peaked yet, and I hope that I don’t for quite a while.

We’re all under construction and not yet finished, but when we’re done, I suspect that it will be something quite remarkable.
