My parents took me to a spot where we could view their local heron rookery and we passed by this old building. I don’t know what it was originally used for but, as you can see, it is long past being useful.

We look around and see all sorts of things that have not lasted; they are worn out or not maintained or new technology has made them obsolete. I like this verse about how God’s products are guaranteed to last!

Hallelujah! I give thanks to GOD with everything I’ve got— Wherever good people gather, and in the congregation. GOD’s works are so great, worth A lifetime of study—endless enjoyment! Splendor and beauty mark his craft; His generosity never gives out. His miracles are his memorial— This GOD of Grace, this GOD of Love. He gave food to those who fear him, He remembered to keep his ancient promise. He proved to his people that he could do what he said: Hand them the nations on a platter—a gift! He manufactures truth and justice; All his products are guaranteed to last— Never out-of-date, never obsolete, rust-proof. All that he makes and does is honest and true: He paid the ransom for his people, He ordered his Covenant kept forever. He’s so personal and holy, worthy of our respect. The good life begins in the fear of GOD— Do that and you’ll know the blessing of GOD. His Hallelujah lasts forever!
Psalm 111: 1-10 (The Message)
