  2. Inside - Negative perspective
  3. Above - Ultimate perspective

We Gather Stones For

  1. Protection — Walls
  2. Perception — Watchtower
  3. Production — Winepress

Protection — Walls

We help fortify our lives from the attacks of the enemy by:

  • Reading God’s word
  • Prayer
  • Community (Small groups)

Perception — Watchtower

The watchtower was important because it provided answers for important questions.

Remembering our former victories gives us clarity for present and future battles.

Production — Winepress

The winepress can represent the uncomfortable places of our lives.

When we are pressed something is always produced.

What About Casting Stones Away

The only way to pick up a stone is to stoop down.

Stoop down = humbling ourselves
