“Building on the Rock”

Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” – Matthew 7:24

I recently went for a run on fresh asphalt. Maybe it’s just me, but if I must run on asphalt, I prefer it be new. And this was. New, fresh, asphalt. It was a beautiful thing – as asphalt goes.

But, I got to a particular spot and it was all cracked and crumbling. It seems they had had a tremendous amount of rain and the ground had washed out from under that section of road. Even though the paving was a couple inches thick, it just wouldn’t hold together with nothing of substance under it.

This was Jesus’ point in the parable of the builders. One built on rock and one built on sand. The problem wasn’t the quality of the structure, it was the substance of the foundation.

The world offers us many “foundations” today. But only one, God’s Word, has and will stand the tests of time.

My prayer this week is you will be comforted during the storm of life by knowing your foundation won’t wash away.
