ROM 14:19
Let us therefore follow after  .  .  . things wherewith one may edify another.
Rom. 14:19
Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone practiced this? To edify means to build up. How easy it is to knock down. How long it takes to build up. I saw an article once about a skyscraper demolition specialist. By placing explosives in the correct location on the foundation pillars this man could cause a multi-story building, that took months to build, to disintegrate into a heap of rubble in seconds. So it is with us. One sharp word can destroy a friendship that took years to build. Let’s edify one another today.
