Our president has been sharply criticized for his statement: “You didn’t build that!” Although I might adamantly insist that “I did,” I am persuaded of the facts that I did not without the help of others build anything. Educationally, others provided rudimentary knowledge which I used in what I built. Materially, others furnished parts of what I built. Elementally, the One provided everything I and the others used to build what I built.
How disgustingly arrogant I am! And, at once, how naively puny! If not for my educators, my life span would never afford the time required to discover the intricacies of building a bicycle, let alone a multi-billion dollar business. If not for parts providers - assuming I had the expertise - I would require three hundred years to manufacture an automobile. If not for the One there would be nothing to build with, nor would I be here to think I built it.
