The Foundation

Let us take seriously the call to let light shine in our lives (Matthew 5:14) by building on the proper foundation. Remember the story of the big bad wolf? The wolf threatened to huff and puff and blow down the houses of the three little pigs. He succeeded in blowing down two of the houses, but he failed on the third. Why? Because brother number three had the sense to build his house out of bricks and mortar.

Jesus shared a principle that is important for us today. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock” (Matthew 7:24,25).

Today we are bombarded on all sides by the big bad wolf. Satan is the one who huffs and puffs and seeks to blow down our homes and tear down our relationships. Therefore, build your life with the foundation of support and encouragement of the Lord.
