When I was small, I thought I would build something. Taking a board, I nailed it to the ground. I learned quickly: Nails into dirt don’t hold.

Worth it?

But laying a solid foundation is tremendously time-consuming, difficult, and expensive, and after the building is completed, it doesn’t show all that much. Is it really worth it?

Ancient buildings had foundations. Modern technology has not discovered a way to dispense with a good substructure.


Worth it!

Our lives too need something solid underneath. At the end of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus contrasted two builders. One built on sand, the other on rock. When the storm hit, what a difference! Check out Matthew 7:24-27 and ask yourself, “Am I anchored to the Rock?”
