What is it?
That is a gate the granddaughter made out of "stuff"
that was laying around.
A gate to where? Well, no where.
Then, what for? Oh! Keep the boggy man out,
I guess. You would have to ask her, if she knows.
She wanted to make a gate.
You can be sure though,
that it took her and grandpa some effort.
It cost her and grandpa some time.
Let's face it. She was bored and wanted to do something.
How much of life is just like that. We do something just
because we want to. But the reality of it is that it,
does not do us any good.
It does not help anyone else.
And it sure does not do anything to help God's work.
"For God has already placed Jesus Christ as the one and
only foundation, and no other foundation can be laid.
Some will use gold or silver or precious stones in
building on the foundation;
others will use wood or grass or straw.
And the quality of each person's work will be seen
when the Day of Christ exposes it. For on that Day
fire will reveal everyone's work; the fire will test it
and show its real quality.
If what was built on the foundation survives the fire,
the builder will receive a reward.
But if your work is burnt up, then you will lose it;..."
(1 Corinthians 3:11-15 TEV)
