Greatest Universal Call

Of pauper or rich men
Of steel-muscled builder
Of cook in the kitchen
Or hand at a mill
Of teacher and student
Or preacher and pulpit
Of captain and cruiser
Of surgeon with skill
Of high-dollar business suit
Blue-collar hero
Grease-stained mechanic
Or farmer with field
Of lawyer or convict
Of merchant or patron
Of servant or master
Of mother with child
Of painter or poet
Or winner or loser
Or athlete or invalid
Whether short or tall
Or bashful or boastful
Or hasty or careful
None are exempt
From this life's greatest call
Of bowing before Him
The Lord of Creation
This Greatest Work
Should be rendered with care
For nothing is greater
Or of more importance
Than meeting our Maker
In war-rooms of prayer

 As I read this parable I couldn't help but mourn/fear the Great Fall of our great country of Canada/North America as its builders reject the Stone ...

Psalm 118:22-
The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;

 Isaiah 28:16
So this is what the Lord GOD says: 
"See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, 
a sure foundation; the one who believes will never be shaken.

 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them,
 I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, 
and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not,
 shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; 
and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
