This fire pit reminds me of an evening at my son-in-laws place a few months back. Ok, their fire pit wasn't as fancy as this one and we only had folding chairs, but we did have a nice time (that is, until the bugs became too much of a bother).
I am always amazed at people who are handy (like my son-in-law, Mike). They just seem to know how to get-r done. Then, the thought came to me: What if God wanted something built, what then? Well, here is the answer...
Exodus, Chapter 35 (World English Bible)
30 Moses said to the children of Israel, “Behold, Yahweh has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 31 He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of workmanship; 32 and to make skillful works, to work in gold, in silver, in brass, 33 in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all kinds of skillful workmanship. 34 He has put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. 35 He has filled them with wisdom of heart, to work all kinds of workmanship, of the engraver, of the skillful workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of those who do any workmanship, and of those who make skillful works.
Now,all the work these men did (and all those who helped them) was intricate, exquisite and very detailed. If you would like to read about it- check out Exodus, Chapters 36-39.
Today, people who work with their hands are put down by the intellectuals. But, our society was built by people who were not afraid to get their hands dirty. Remember, without the American farmer we would't even eat!!!
One more thing. God put the skill into the hands of those who made the tabernacle and all its trappings. God gives us all abilities and we should use them to the fullest!!!
Now, to my son-in-law, Mike: How about making this beautiful little project for our fire-pit nights?
