Anyone who listens to my teaching and obeys me is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the flood waters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse, because it is built on rock. But anyone who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will fall with a mighty crash." Matthew 7:24-27
Anyone who knows anything about constructing a building knows you have to have a solid foundation to build on. Without that foundation the building will shift and eventually collapse. The Leaning Tower of Pisa was not originally constructed to lean. The builders didn’t take into consideration the ground they were building on and because of that through the years it began to lean. Under the soil at that location is a soft layer of clay which is made up of sand. One day it will topple over.
Like buildings our lives and families need to have a firm and strong foundation. Divorce and the destruction of the family unit is a major problem today. Many turn to psychology or religion to fix their problems but soon they find that these solutions are like the clay the Tower of Pisa is built on and slowly their family is in danger of collapse once again.
There is only one true foundation and it is not a religion, it is a person. His name is Jesus. In Matthew chapters 5 to 7 Jesus gave us an outline on how to build a strong foundation. Your life must be totally built upon Him. Without Him you are lost and you life and dreams will one day collapse. There is an old hymn that says: "On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand."
Is your life built on sinking sand? Are you willing to build upon Him? Will you turn to Him today? It’s simple. All you have to do is admit you are a sinner and in need of Him. Then ask Him into your heart. Now, find a Bible, read it and attend a Bible believing church. Pray and ask Him to straighten out your foundation.
