“Building Your House”

Carpenter was fixing to retire and tells the company he works for he was through building houses. They ask him to build one more before he retires. He agrees and through the process of building this last house he begins to cut corners, uses cheaper materials, doesn’t use the same precision in which he used to and basically built an inferior home. When he’s done he gives the keys to his boss and says here you go I’m done. The boss returns the key and says thanks for all your hard work and dedication to this company. This home is yours and we appreciate you. Obviously, had the carpenter known he was building his own house he would not have cut corners.

I tell our kids you’re building your house every day and don’t even know it. GO TO WORK!
