Building on a Good and Strong Foundation

Building sand castles can be lots of fun, and there are so many different ways to build them or to create moats or waterways, too. But they can be washed away when the waves roll up. So it would be kind of silly to build a real house on top of the sand right where the waves could crash in and wash it away.

Jesus thought that, too. He said about building a house on the sand, “When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash” (Matt 7:27 NLT).

So, we want to build our house in a place and on a foundation that won’t get washed away. Jesus said, “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock” (Matt 7:24-25).

Let’s think of the house as our lives. Just as we want to build our house on the rock, so we want to build our lives on the rock. That means we turn to God, we trust God with everything. We keep our thoughts full of love and kindness. We make wise choices.

Jesus wanted us to listen to what he was saying in the Sermon on the Mount, and he wanted us to do what he said. So what did he say? He gave us the Beatitudes, told us to shine our light, to follow the Golden Rule, to make things right with our friends and family, to bless those who try to hurt us. And he told us so much more.

Have fun making Godlike choices with the Fun and Games.
