Dennis Newman’s Recycling Analogy

Our company is essentially a large-scale recycling plant for construction sites. Trucks arrive from an external job site loaded with discarded asphalt and concrete, and dump it into a huge pile for processing. Next, a CAT loader scoops it up to load into a processing plant, where it gets crushed into small pieces called “aggregate base material.” This material gets loaded back onto large trucks for delivery to new job sites, where it is used as a base material for new construction. We take something that would have been dumped in a landfill and give it new life.

An incredible bonus is that this new recycled base material is superior to the original base material. The oil in the asphalt and the cement in the concrete are activated by the crushing process, enriching the material and increasing its stability, strength and durability.

A few years ago, while supervising this work, I was struck by a simple but profound analogy between my life and that of the material being processed. Throughout my life, I considered myself a pretty good man who did mostly good things. But at age 40, I came to understand that because of man’s natural tendency towards selfishness, I (like the rest of the world) was destined for failure unless there was divine intervention. Like the asphalt which is torn up and brought to our facility, my life was a road headed for destruction.

Fortunately, God is eager to intervene in our lives, as soon as we ask Him. We, too, can be “recycled” – in spiritual terms, it is called “redemption.” I asked God to forgive me for only thinking of myself, and committed my life to Him. He took the pieces of my life and made it something stronger and better.

Colleague, if you haven’t yet made a decision for Christ, do it today. There is no other way to a new life. If you have questions, or would like to hear about my experience in more detail, I would be happy to speak with you.

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life” (John 3:16 MSG).
