Good morning.

Do you remember the story of the three little pigs who each build a house: one of straw, another of sticks, and the last of bricks. The wolf “huffs and puffs” to blow their homes down and is successful with the first two. But the house of bricks stands.

Jesus taught the same principle. He said one man built his house on a rock while another built on sand (Matt. 7:24-27). In rain and wind, the home on the solid foundation stood firm.

Jesus, however, was teaching about obedience, not construction. "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) Life must be built on the dependability of the gospel if we’re to withstand the storms that arise.

Proverbs 3:3 in the Modern English Version says: "Do not let mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart" (Proverbs 3:3 MEV) Truth should be an intrinsic part of life, as second nature as breathing.

The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy. (Proverbs 12:22)

As followers of Christ let truth and integrity characterise our walk with Him and each other.
