Nothing we do, consider, treasure or abandon on this earth is not also in some sense part of our “re-creation “of ourselves. As the body generates new cells we may re-form ourselves: for better or for worse.
What if it should turn out eternity
Was but the steeple on our house of life
Than made our house of life a house of worship?
-From A Steeple On The House, Robert Frost
“Whatever you do, put your whole heart and soul into it, as into work done for God, and not merely for men—knowing that your real reward, a heavenly one, will come from God, since you are actually employed by Christ…”
– Colossians 3 (JB Phillips)
