Day 44: The glory of Lebanon

The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the cypress tree, the pine tree, and the cedar together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. (Isa. 60:13)

The way we build, use, and maintain a house of worship speaks volumes about us and about who we think God is. When we create something beautiful for Him, we are raising a testimony to the world around us that we love Him and want to lavish our devotion upon Him. Our God is worthy of that devotion, worthy of sacrifice and worthy of acclaim, so let’s make His praise – and his place – glorious!

Father, we want to display Your glory and your worth to the people of our region. As we pray, labor, and talk about You to others, let us remember that You are calling us to build something that is meant to speak of Your holiness and Your goodness. Let this place be beautiful, and full of Your life and glory!
