We Gather Stones For
- Protection — Walls
- Perception — Watchtower
- Production — Winepress
Protection — Walls
We help fortify our lives from the attacks of the enemy by:
- Reading God’s word
- 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
