The people should not think that small beginnings are unimportant. They will be happy when they see Zerubbabel with tools, building the Temple.          Zehariah 4:10


I once told Bob W. that I’d always wanted a toolbox. Bob is the handyperson and tech guy for the church, but he donates his time and talent for free. I knew Bob would understand my need for tools in my job as the church secretary. In fourteen years, I’ve tried to fix things with borrowed hammers, screwdrivers, measuring tapes, and more. Bob gifted me a toolbox sometime later, and I put my name on it thinking that it would be mine forever. Wrong. This toolbox is used constantly by others, and I love it! The tools are always returned because everyone knows I use these tools in my job. You see, Church is more than just worshiping God in the sanctuary. It’s also about using a trowel to weed the yard, measuring a space to see if the new printer will fit, screwing in a nut and bolt to tighten the copier, etc. The church may stand on a rock, but the people inside it and the tools used to build and repair it are just as important. We all need a toolbox!
