3D Carved Word

This customer wanted the word “something” because she works with school kids and wants to reinforce the principle, if you see something say something.

As I am working, I have been thinking about God’s value system in contrast to man’s. What is of most value to God is not the final product of whatever our hands find to do, but whether or not we are allowing His Spirit to train our character through the process of our work. Am I fighting His character being formed in me or yielding and embracing with joy and thankfulness?
