Walking along the roads of life can sometimes get lonely. We can find ourselves looking for ways to fit in and not standout. Fitting where we can, allowing us to use just enough power to slide or glide by where we fit comfortable. Sometime the comfortable fitting may allow for more room and yet we find ourselves squeezing into tight places. We fit. We accept. We begin not to want more room only desiring to fill the room we are in. Living in a house of glass allows you to see through to the outer. If you squeeze into this glass house, over time the glass will began to crack in dry places where there’s no moisture, or constantly trying to hold on to the little moisture provided. As the moisture slowly dissipates you find yourself stuck on the inside of the glass house which eventually shatters.
As we continue on the road of life, at some point we’ll have experienced a failed relationship. Just because the glass shatters; it doesn’t have to be broken. If you’ve experienced a failed relationship, use the clear view you were given by looking inward, and fix what’s broken and not shattered.
This is the time to pick up the pieces, mend and begin to build a new house upon the foundation that has already been laid. While living in a glass house, take the opportunity to see the light shining through. Use it as a guide to living a more rewarding life; continuing to build your house on the foundation already laid and that’s Jesus Christ!
Thank God you didn’t live in a house of brick which can block your view. At least living in a glass house can allow more light to shine through, allowing you to see your way out.
Acts 4:11 (NIV)
He is the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone.
