Looking Down to Reach Heaven

I took this picture when I visited a religious site yesterday. This tower is just one among many. Some are plated gold or silver and some are meticulously decorated with ceramic tiles and precious stones. Men who made them spent not just money but time and sweat, as well. Piece by piece, rain or shine.... the work must be done. Why so high? To reach what? Don't we know that looking down we see dirty, cupped hands. It is when we bend down to them that we reach heaven.

"Let your light shine before men so that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven."
- Matthew 5:16
"I still say a church steeple with a lightening rod on top shows a lack of confidence."
- Doug McLeod

"God enters by a private door into every individual."
- Ralph Waldo
