Building a Strong Foundation
I was watching a movie last night, well at least part of it until I got sleepy, and there was a scene when this high school teacher was asking the principal about how to be a good teacher. The principal's response was something that got me to thinking. He said, "you have to build a strong foundation if you want to be able to be any good at what you do..." I got to thinking about about how we as Christians have to have a firm foundation upon which we build our lives if we are going to come along side someone who needs help.
 
After hearing Pastor Paul's message yesterday about how God passed the "baton" off to Joshua just helped affirm that no matter what we face, we MUST have a strong foundation if we want to stand firm. As we are witnessing in our country right now to riots and protests, we as believers have a responsibility, in my opinion, to pray for all those around us who may be affected by these times of hatred. We must continue to build our foundation upon the ROCK, GOD, so when these times do come close to home that we are ready to witness to the love and peace that our Savior gives. We can only do that by building our lives firmly upon THE ROCK!
 
So I ask you today, what have you built your house upon? Is it sand that will quickly wash away when a storm comes? Or is it the ROCK that will only stand firm through every trial and storm? I pray it's the ROCK!
 
You can read about the parable of Matthew 7:24-27, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
 
So, build your life on the Lord, Jesus Christ, and your life will STAND!
