Scaffolding

Good morning! 

Scaffolding.

It’s what’s going on at our house. The front windows are coming down. No more arched windows. With them the bars. Bronze, larger, rectangular windows will take their place. The brick masons are prepared to do their magic. Taking down the brick and bricking around the new windows.  I can’t wait to see the difference! 

We scaffold in our special education classroom as well. Scaffolding is a variety of instructional techniques, used to move students progressively toward stronger strategies and understanding and greater independence in the learning process.

When faced with a situation in life that seems a little out of reach, physically, intellectually, or emotionally, to be on the safe side, why not just rely on scaffolding?!  

We’ve been doing it for centuries!  It’s our safety net.

Why not instead turn to Jesus to be your safety net? He is better than scaffolding. He is always there to catch us if we should fall. Why not fall for him instead? 

Here’s to scaffolding. That which is used to support a work crew. And here’s to Jesus. The best support there is! Better than scaffolding. You can count on it!

For Solomon had made a Brasen scaffold of 5 cubits long, and 5 cubits Broad, and 3 cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court, and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven.                                         2 Chronicles 6:13-14

Love and laughter.
