A Carpenter’s job

I’ve often wondered why Jesus chose the job of a carpenter as a job choice.  The answer had to lie in what a carpenter’s job is known for, I surmise.  So I looked it up.  A carpenter:

  1. prepare the foundations of buildings
  2. install beams, girders and footing forms
  3. build stairs and stair forms
  4. construct sloped and unequal pitch roofs
  5. apply wall and ceiling coverings, inside and outside
  6. install trim, doors, baseboards, mouldings, cabinets and other finish carpentry
  7. lay floors of resilient tile or hardwood strips
  8. erect and insulate walls, ceilings and floors
  9. fireproof beams and columns

So is the Lord Jesus showing us yet another truth about His character and nature through his short career choice?  He is the foundation and lays one in us?

Sinner’s Prayer:

Dear Lord & Father, You are the Creator of all things and I know you created me. But I recognize I am a sinner through Adam's Fall and you sent your only Son, Jesus Christ to live, die and be raised from the dead for me. I repent of my sins and renounce all evil works and serving of other, lower, and lesser gods before thee. Come into me life and cleanse me by your Blood. Make me whole and well by your Holy Spirit. I now desire to live for you. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in all things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!

Scripture of the Month-March

Things to consider:

Jesus never charged for His Sermons, Preaching, Healing, etc...why should we put His Anointing on books, tapes, and cds, and charge people for it? I recall How angry Jesus was when the leaders of the Church of His time altered the purpose of the temple and made it a business. Shouldn't we too, be afraid to do the same? UPDATE: a minister pointed out, He didn't have to because His own people were financing Him. They were wealthy...
