I saw those words on a truck this past week: "Roper Building Supply, established in 1909". I was reminded that longevity in a business is supposed to communicate stability, dependability and capability in the marketplace. 1909 is almost 100 years ago. It is pretty impressive that any business could flourish for that length of time, considering all the business cycles we've experienced. But when it comes to "stability, dependability and capability", you'd be hard-pressed to pick a better relationship than Jesus, the carpenter from Nazareth. If He were to be seen driving a truck these days, it might say "Jesus, carpenter and human reconstruction, since before time began".
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
