Jesus is referred to as the Chief Cornerstone that the builders rejected.  This comparison comes from the account of when Solomon’s temple was being built.  There was a stone that those working on the project thought was oddly shaped and probably made incorrectly.  It wasn’t until the building was done and the stone thrown to the side that they realized it was the top stone, the most important stone of the structure.  The Jews once rejected Jesus when they had Him crucified, but they will realize their mistake and accept Him as their Messiah when He returns.

What should we always be ready to give?

-A reason of the hope that is in us-

-Thy heart will all diligence-

-Thy due diligence-

-Of thy wealth-
