The work is halfway done when the first rock is set. However, it took 20 days for me to place the first rock. Taking action is that difficult.
Living a life of faith is equivalent to building the house of your heart. As you live, your house of faith is being built.
There have been many times when I have seen people trip over nothing on flat ground. Even for me, there was one occasion when I tripped and fell on the ground even though I am used to playing soccer and using my legs. At that time, I fell over because I tripped over another member. However, people sprain themselves even while walking on level ground. They trip because their mind is occupied by something else.
When you do everything you can possibly do and then do a little more on top of that… that small extra amount will determine your destiny. It is about doing things once more for the final time!

When I built the rock landscape in Wolmyeongdong, if I had thoughts of only setting up small sized rocks, I would have looked for and erected only small sized rocks. Then the Natural Temple would have become a “mini” rock temple.
Existing in itself is not an easy thing to do. Everything exists in the process of overcoming many difficulties. Nothing is the way it is for no reason.

From the perspective of God who created the universe and the earth, what would be the best way to use the earth to bring God the most satisfaction?
Every Sunday and Wednesday, God gives us His Word. It is the fertilizer for the land we must plow called our hearts.
Just as fertilizer is poured after a farmer plows the ground where a fruit tree was planted, I will pour the Word deeply into everyone’s heart as much as the Lord gives. So, all of you have to truly listen attentively and store the Word in your heart.
