Stone Pillars

I love pillars. Pillars on homes. Pillars on buildings. Pillars on monuments.

It’s one of the many reason’s I love going to Washington D.C. There’s just something strong and beautiful about them. When you look at the Jefferson Memorial, you can’t help but notice its pillars. I had the opportunity to chaperone Carter’s 8th grade trip to DC where I captured the photo above of the Washington Monument… side note, if you have the opportunity to chaperone your kid’s trip, do it… it’s time well spent for sure.

But Washington D.C. isn’t the only place where you will find pillars. Check this out:

“I am writing these things to you now, even though I hope to be with you soon, so that if I am delayed, you will know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God. This is the church of the living God, which is the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:14-15

There’s deep meaning in the word, “Pillar.”

Pillars are strong.

They stand for something.

Pillars are noticeable.

They stand out.

Pillars are beautiful.

They’re majestic.

There’s deep meaning in the word, “Pillar.”

Paul, the writer of 1 Timothy, tells us that the church of the living God is a pillar of truth.

My question is…

What are you a pillar of?

At your job.

In your marriage.

In your relationships with your friends…

And kids.

What are you a pillar of?

Truth? Love? Peace?

The world… your coworkers… your children… my children… need us to be pillars that are described in 1 Timothy.

We all stand for something. We are all noticed. We’re all pillars…

The question is…

What are you a pillar of?
