Broken-Down House

Jim and I have just begun reading Paul Tripp’s book entitled Broken-Down House: Living Productively in a World Gone Bad. It was recommended to us a year ago and we finally found it at the top of the book pile!

“Sin has ravaged the house that God created. This world sits slumped, disheveled, in pain, groaning for the restoration that can only be accomplished by the hands of the Builder. The bad news is that we are living in the midst of the restoration process. The good news is that the divine Builder will not relent until his house is made new again. Someday you will live forever in a fully restored house, but right now you are called to live with peace, joy, and productivity in a place damaged by sin. Emmanuel lives here with us, and he is at work returning his house to its former beauty.”
