What else can be compared to being co-laborers with God?

The Bible says natural men are like "brute beasts...their inward thought is that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations. They call their lands after their own names....They are laid in the grave..[they] shall carry nothing away...they shall never see light...like the beasts that perish" (Ps. 49) What's the use of building an empire, wealth, even having convention centers, stadiums and malls named after yourself? It's all going to burn up! God loved the world enough to die for it, the best way we can use our time as good servants, is to see what the master deems important and so structure our lives as to maximize the effort we can devote to that cause. We can't save monuments from the fire, but we can be co-laborers with him in saving PEOPLE from the fire, and people saved from the fire will be LIVING, breathing, PRAISING monuments to the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us for ages to come.
