Just Relax

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He 
told his employer-contractor of his plans 
to leave the house-building business and live 
a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his 
extended family. He would miss the paycheck, but 
he needed to retire. They    could get by.
The contractor was sorry to see his good worker
go and asked if he could build just one more house
as a personal favor. 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 his career.
When the carpenter finished his work and the
builder came to inspect the house, the contractor
handed the front-door key to the carpenter. "This is
your house," he said, "my gift to you."
What a shock! What a shame! If he had only known
he was building his own house, he would have done
it all so differently. Now he had to live in the home
he had built none too well.
So it is with us. We build our lives in a distracted 
way, reacting rather than acting, willing to put up 
less than the best. At important points we do not give 
the job our best effort.
Then with a shock we look at the situation we have
created and find that we are now living in the house
we have built. If we had realized, we would have
done it differently.
Think of yourself as the carpenter. Think about your
house. Each day you hammer a nail, place a board,
or erect a wall. Build wisely. It is the only life you
will ever build. Even if you live it for only one day
more, that day deserves to be lived graciously and
with dignity.
Your life today is the result of your attitudes and
choices in the past. Your life tomorrow will be the
result of your attitudes and the choices you make
What do you appreciate most about the
carpenter's story above...?
And, what are you building...?
