Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on a rock (Matthew 7:24).
I haven’t built a house, but I have built a shed.
Before you get the wrong impression and think I’m handy or something, you might wanna read this post from long ago. Then you’ll understand that when I say that I built a shed, I mean that I squinted and made man sounds while friends who actually knew what they were doing designed and laid out the structure and showed me which end of the hammer to swing.
I did most of the roofing myself though…course I fell off the ladder.
Another story for another time.
The point is, we poured a concrete foundation. I wanted this structure to last, and I was told that stability begins at the bottom. If your foundation isn’t solid, it doesn’t really matter what you build on it, you’re gonna wobble.
Build well today, Beloved.
