Wood, Hay, Stubble ~ or ~ Gold, Silver, Precious Stones?

THE TALE OF THE TWO WALLS…

hay-gold

Dr Chuck Missler had two walls in his office. One wall displayed his earlier corporate achievements, what he described as his ‘wood, hay, stubble’ wall. Looked good, impressive even, but meaningless in the face of eternity. The other wall displayed his later achievements, his Bible study ministry, book covers of books he wrote, etc. He described that as his ‘gold, silver, precious stones’ wall. Building for eternity.

For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.  For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. 1 Corinthians 3: 9-15

And it makes me wonder…

Which wall are we hanging our achievements on?
