Are you a builder??

A mentor of mine shared this little Diddy with me years ago

The Author is unknown, but the moral is timelessly true

Which Are You? 

I watched them tearing a building down,
A gang of men in a busy town.
With a heave-ho and a lusty yell,
They swung the beams and the side walls fell.

I asked the foreman, “Are these men skilled?,
The kind you’d hire were you to build?”
He laughed and said, “Why, no indeed!
Just common laborers are all I need.
They can easily wreck in a day or two
What builders have taken years to do.”

And I thought to myself as I went on my way:
“What part in the game of life do I play?
Am I a builder who works with care,
Measuring life by the rule and the square?
Am I shaping my deed to a well-made plan,
Patiently doing the best I can?
Or am I a wrecker who walks the town,
Content with the labor of tearing down?”


Sell like your living depends on it
