Doers of the Word

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 @ 09:31 AM Doers of the Word Don Wildmon Founder MORE

Have you ever found yourself questioning the true meaning of living a life of faith? In the latest episode of 'It's My Turn,' host Don Wildmon presents us with a narrative that does just that. Through the story of a church's construction project, we are offered a window into the complex interplay between professing one's beliefs and the actions that follow.


The episode begins with the church's decision to hire a contractor known for his extensive biblical knowledge. One would assume that a man of such spiritual insight would bring not only skill but also integrity to the task at hand. However, as the story unfolds, we are left to question whether knowledge of Scripture translates to living out its principles.


The contractor's repeated delays, lack of responsiveness, and overcharging paint a picture of unreliability and disregard for his commitments. Meanwhile, the church's minister, who had previously been impressed by the contractor's biblical acumen, finds himself facing the consequences of misplaced trust.


In a surprising turn of events, the church is forced to seek the services of a second contractor. This man, with no claims of religious fervor or Sunday school teaching, brings a starkly different approach to the job. His promptness, efficiency, and fair pricing stand in sharp contrast to the first contractor's conduct.


As listeners, we are left to ponder the episode's central question: Which of the two men came closer to embodying the teachings of Jesus? The story challenges us to reflect on our own lives and how we demonstrate our values through our actions.


Don Wildmon's storytelling is as engaging as it is enlightening, prompting us to consider the essence of Christian teachings beyond the walls of a church.
