Reflection by Rev. Leonard N. Peterson
If you have ever lived in or visited a large city, you probably have had the chance to watch a skyscraper under construction. For the first six months or so of the project, all the workmen do is make a great hole in the ground. To build a tall building by starting far below the surface level seems absurd, even crazy. But, as you would suspect, there is a good reason for the large hole. To build a mammoth building like the Freedom Tower in New York City, it is first necessary to dig down until a strong foundation can be built, one that is capable of supporting the skyscraper.
A dog house needs no foundation, and an ordinary house can be built on little more than a concrete slab. But a skyscraper, that’s different. It requires a deep and solid foundation.
