Yesterday I showed you a sad wall, today I will show you a happy one. This colorful wall was built in one of our poorest sections of town. The disadvantaged children living there don't have as much hope as some others, but this wall is giving them that. The local elementary school and a local college got together and painted this wall. It is something the children can be proud of, something they made themselves. And knowing you made something good can do wonders for your confidence. This wall is every bit as healing as yesterday's was, but in a different way. For the people of yesterday's wall, there was no hope. For the people of this wall, there is. If you were painting such a wall, what image would you put on it? But the wall is only part of the story, I will show you the rest on my next post.
“God brings poverty and God brings wealth; he lowers, he also lifts up. He puts poor people on their feet again; he rekindles burned-out lives with fresh hope, Restoring dignity and respect to their lives— a place in the sun! For the very structures of earth are God's; he has laid out his operations on a firm foundation.”
