Happy Monday my lovelies,
Each of us has experienced the "storms of life" and I'm confident each of us has more than one story to tell. When I think about "storms of life" I think of a number of things our family has weathered. What about you friend, what storms can you share that challenged your spiritual foundation?
Luke 6:46, "He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well
Matthew 7:25-27, "The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” (NIV)
I've been studying this parable in these two books of the New Testament and I'm struck by many things. Today I'd like to rest on the fact that both houses were subjected to the same storms.
What words of wisdom can you share on the exhortation to build your house on a firm foundation?
