One little Christian can't do much, 'tis true; brought his friend to Bible study and then there were two.
Two earnest Christians, each won one more; that doubled the number, then there were four.
Four sincere Christians worked early and late; each won another and then there were eight.
Eight splendid Christians, doubling weekly as before; seven Sundays later, they'd have 1024!
In this little jingle, there is a lesson true, you belong either to the building or wrecking crew!
Although I do not know the author to the prior excellent poem, I wanted to share it with you today and encourage you to carefully consider what side you are on. When it comes to the Lord's church, are you constructive or destructive? You're either one or the other (whether you realize it or not; cf. Matt. 12:30). May we seek to build up the church faithfully and lovingly and not grow weary or lose heart (cf. Gal. 6:9). Growth happens one soul at a time!
"And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women" (Acts 5:14). Let us work and pray for growth today!
