When we encounter challenges in life, we may react in one of two ways. We may either build walls to protect ourselves or we may build altars to focus our attention on offering praises and blessings to the Lord. The danger of walls is that they can shut you in and shut others out, thereby isolating you and rendering you incapacitated. The treasure of altars is that they allow you to freely offer your highest and best to the Most High God, thereby delighting Him and positively affecting you.
Assess your methods for dealing with challenges. Are you building walls or are you erecting altars?
