Jesus said to them, ‘Have you never read in the scriptures:
“The stone that the builders rejected
   has become the cornerstone;
this was the Lord’s doing,
   and it is amazing in our eyes”?  (Matthew 21:42)
We have two sons.  As they grew up, Legos were a mainstay in their toy collections.  Grant or Josh would receive a Lego birthday or Christmas gift - it would be a box of tiny plastic blocks with illustrated instructions concerning how to put the hundreds of blocks together to create a battleship or a Star Wars X-wing fighter.  They would spend hours reading the directions, finding the right piece and working their way to the goal.

Just this past year Josh told us that one day he was mad at his brother, so while Grant was assembling a Lego project, Josh took a single block, and hid it away.  Talk about angst!  "Where is this piece?  I need this piece!"

Jesus is the cornerstone - the Foundation upon which we build our lives.  No one can take that away and hide it, but sometimes we ignore it.  We miss the cornerstone; we overlook it, we assume we don't need it, and what we build suffers.  Do we reject the cornerstone?  Do we need to go searching?
