Unfinished Works


One of the most recognizable monuments in our country is Mount Rushmore. The faces of Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln, carved out of a mountain, are known by all who live in the US. But did you know that Mount Rushmore is actually an unfinished project? The original plan for the monument included full torsos, arms, and hands for each of the men. While what we see today is impressive, in its’ own right, can you imagine how majestic the final project would’ve looked? Sometimes, in our spiritual walk we take a look at ourselves and think, “Wow, I’m doing pretty good”, and then we stop improving. Our faith is not something we can quit working on and expect it to be “good enough.” Paul tells us in Philippians 2:12 “continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”  We are told to pursue Christ and our salvation continuously, always making improvements and never settling. Of all things in life, our relationship with God is the only thing that requires our best effort and unceasing devotion. I pray that we not leave our souls an unfinished work.         Peace, Houston
