Before he was the Good Shepherd, he was the carpenter’s son, a carpenter himself. We can learn much, from the carpenter, even as the fishermen did, after his rising.
Cutting with the grain, planning the boards level, sanded smooth, measuring, planning, drafting and redrafting, before the first cut, long before the nailing.
Being the hands, using the tools, the skills, the blueprint, for this work and their lives. Following the plans of the carpenter and his heavenly father, the creator, the master architect.
