[The Glory Unveiled]
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?( Matthew 21:42 )
In the time of the inspired writers, stones were used as cement blocks. Some builders still use stones instead of cement blocks till date. The stones are hewn to have the desired shape. But then, usually the excesses from these desired ones are abandoned because they cannot properly fit into the pattern of the building. But again, sometimes, these abandoned or rejected stones and picked up and used for the angle in the wall; the corners. The corners are such that they do not need a desired stone because the desired stone will not fit properly. It is usually the rejected ones that often fit because they are “out of shape”. Beloved in Christ, a certain standard or status of the world may exempt you from something or some privilege but in the end it may actually validate you for something only you are qualified for. Even though a shovel looks like a bigger spoon, they do not serve the same purpose. You are designed in the image of God and your purpose is irreplaceable. God is God alone and beside Him there is no other. We came after the order and kind of God ,so even if the world rejects us, we become the chief corner stone in their wall. Cheer up, you are indispensable.
Prayer_Bead: Gracious Father, thank you for the grace that has made us unique. Thank you for making us the chief cornerstones even after the builder’s of this world’s system rejected us.
