More important than the materials used to construct a house is the foundation upon which the house is built. That’s because the best materials cannot withstand the elements of our climate if they’re built on an unstable foundation. And you can’t judge the soundness of a house’s foundation during fair weather conditions. Likewise, everyone’s life appears equally stable during fair life conditions. However, during inclement weather the shell of one’s life will stand or fall depending on the soundness of its foundation. What serves as the foundation of your life and family? Is it trustworthy enough to withstand the storms of illness? The rains of testing? The floods of grief? The winds of heartbreak? At the end of a life trial, will your house still be standing as a monument to Christ—the faithful Foundation?
