Each one of us has built our lives on a foundation.
Some build on the hopes and dreams of others. Pleasing them becomes our foundation. This is dangerous, because people change, and when they do, our foundation crumbles.
If our hope is in material pleasures and physical appearance, then we will most assuredly be disappointed. On any given day, our money and our appearances can change.
If we place our trust in what the world offers us, then our foundation will always be shifting, changing, depending on the latest trends, fads and fancies.
If we are grounded in God’s truth and seek to make Jesus our entire life, then when hardship and heartbreak come, we have a foundation that won’t move. Jesus said: “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." (Matthew 7:24)
As long as we have breath in our lungs, there’s always an opportunity to change our lives and live fully for Him.
"On Christ the solid rock I stand.
All other ground is sinking sand."
