- Appearance doesn’t equal SUBSTANCE. That is to say just because it looks good on the outside doesn’t mean there aren’t problems underneath. We don’t want to be “whitewashed tombs,” beautiful on the outside and yet full of death.
- It will TAKE LONGER and COST MORE than you thought. DON’T QUIT! When you ask God to search you (Ps 139:23-24), you might find more than you bargained for. But don’t quit. Wrestle with God until He blesses you!
- The PRIZE is worth the STRIVE. Yes, that’s a contrived sentence, but the end result is worth whatever price has to be paid. We serve an “exceedingly abundantly, above all we ask or think” kind of God who makes it all worthwhile!
