On Building Altars

Building altars is probably not a task we would choose, but the Bible gives many accounts where God commanded the building of altars, or where men voluntarily built them.

The first occasion is found in Genesis 8:20, after Noah and his family and all the creatures in the ark came out onto dry ground. Noah built an altar unto the Lord and offered burnt offerings, and the Lord smelled a sweet savor.

The Word of God is Profitable

In our secular lives we appreciate activities and projects which are profitable. Things that are not profitable are a waste of time, talent, and resources.
In our spiritual lives, God would have us to know that reading and studying His Word is always profitable. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (2Tim 3:16-17).
