The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.

Psalm 118: the stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.  It didn't "fit" their plans, they tossed it aside, and Christ became not only part of the "building" but the strongest part, the most integral part.

This made me think: what are we rejecting in our lives that is good? I know many people struggle with Church teaching on a particular subject.  Maybe you've rejected faith outright.  Maybe your faith in Christ is strong, but you find His Church difficult.

Or maybe the rejection in your life is closer to home: a broken relationship, a missed opportunity.

Is it time for you to re-visit something good you've rejected?  Pray about an event, person or issue in your life that you've struggled with and perhaps given up on?  Maybe you will find that what you once rejected will become a strong foundation.
