Developers planned a 20-story condo, the Intempo, in Benidorm, Spain. When plans later changed to expand it to a 47-story building, architects failed to alter their plans to include an elevator to accommodate the larger building. This, of course, would prove to be a huge problem for any residents who might consider living in this building.
The Bible urges us to plan ahead. Jesus says, “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him, saying, ‘This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.’ (Luke 14:28-30).
Some of us once decided to follow Jesus and to build our lives on his teaching.
How’s that building coming along?
