Rock-Solid Foundations Don’t Rock
“And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock . Matthew 7:25 NASB
In Other Words
Harsh rain, wind and floods attacked the house with a rock-solid foundation again and again, yet it still stands to this day because the wise builder knew that a structure is only as strong as its foundation.
✓ Storms will come; expect them
✓ Expect the winds, fear the floods, and respect the rain
✓ A storm-proof house withstands all weather, both gentle and harsh
✓ A shifting foundation becomes weaker with every storm
✓ A vacillating belief system sets us up to fall
✓ A firm foundation doesn’t prevent storms, but it insures survival
✓ Faith built upon uncertainty will certainly fall
✓ Shallow relationships lack solid foundations – so watch out!
✓ Weak spiritual commitments are weak foundations
✓ Rock-solid foundations hold heavy structures
✓ A structure is only as strong as its foundation
