At a recent house dedication in Augusta Crossings, Pastor J. Vincent Terry of SE Raleigh’s Mount Peace Baptist Church shared with us a quote that really spoke volumes to me:
“We all drink from wells that we did not dig and we eat fruit from vines we did not plant.”
At that dedication we had two families who generously shared their abundance with us and were the sponsors of the homes being dedicated. And we had two very blessed families that were excited to become owners of a home for the very first time. Pastor Terry’s words are unifying, aren’t they? No matter our financial resources, we are all blessed by and rely on the work of others for our daily sustenance. This is very obvious in Habitat, but it’s all around us everyday.
