“Built to Last”
Rev. Sandra K. Olewine, preaching
Isaiah 49:8-16 and Matthew 7:7-14, 21-29
In our day, planned obsolescence is the norm. Stuff is designed to fail and to fall apart. But Jesus says in the closing words of the Sermon on the Mount, that his manifesto provides a foundation that will last, surviving every storm, every twist, and every season. Isaiah says we need not worry whatever may come, because God has inscribed us on God’s palm, never to be forgotten or forsaken.
