My husband and I have built two houses in our married life, and through that process one of the first things we learned was that if we didn't have a solid, stable foundation, our house was going to have serious problems. That being the case, we made sure our contractor took great care with the pouring of our foundations.
God has given us His Word to be our foundation. But when we choose to do things our own way instead of following His direction, we're going to run into problems. Verse 49 portrays this problem pretty clearly. "But the one who hears and does not do them is like the man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great."
How would you describe your foundation? What are you doing to keep your foundation solid and strong? Tami
