God builds

We are the soil,
we are the clay
we toil, in the fields
we plant, we sow
we water
according to God’s plan
In his time, as God wills it
God the builder
we but the stones
we are the gloves
he is the fingers
what comes of our efforts
God only knows

My response to this post:
“How does that statement conform with 1 Corinthians 3:5-9?”
1 Corinthians 3:5-9
“5Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
6I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
7So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.”
1 John 1:1-8
1 John 1:1-2:2
Luke 6:41-42
