Welcome to my twenty first blog 🙂!!!
“It’s not the beauty of a building you should look at, it’s the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time” David Allan Coe.
Every building, whether it’s the tallest skyscraper there is. Or the smallest house ever seen, all need to have a good foundation.
A good foundation is what allows a house to stand for a long time. It might be the most beautiful house you have ever seen. But without a good foundation, then it’s a badly built house. This is because this beautiful house will not last for many years. It will have many constructional problems and may end up falling apart.
The same is true in our lives. We need to have a good foundation in our lives. A good foundation will ensure we live our lives to the fullest. And we achieve the goals we have set out to achieve.
A good foundation will help us live a happy life. Not one that is without trouble. But a life that had trouble but since we had a good foundation. We were able to overcome all the problems.
You must be wondering, what do you mean when you say, ‘the foundation of a person life’?
According to the internet dictionary, a foundation means an underlying basis or principle. In a person’s life, it would mean the principles or values that you hold that form or determine who you are.
What do you believe about yourself and others? How do you make your decisions about yourself? And what can you do and not do?
Being consistent with who you hold out yourself to be for others. And who you hold out yourself to be for yourself. This is all part of the definition of a person’s foundation.
Mathew 7: 24-27… Anyone who hears and obeys these teachings of mine is like a wise person who built a house on solid rock.
25. Rain poured down, rivers flooded and the winds beat against that house. But it did not fall because it was built on solid rock.
26. Anyone who hears my teachings and doesn’t obey them is like a foolish person who built a house on sand.
27. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded, and the winds blew and beat against the house. Finally, it fell with a crash.
The word of God helps us to form a good foundation in our lives. It should help you determine your values and principles in your life. The word of God should help you know who you are. And who you are not.
With a good value system in your life, you will be able to face any problems and challenges that come your way. And you will definitely last through the storm.
