“According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.” (1 Corinthians 3:10-13)
Today’s Morsel: One of the most important things in home building is the foundation. If the foundation is laid correctly, it will usually hold what is placed on it. But if it is not, what is placed on it can easily fall. Paul says that he had laid the foundation, which is Jesus Christ, and that we need to be careful how and what we build upon it. Because he says that everything that we build on it will be tested. The foundation of Jesus Christ is firm and solid. So we need to decide what we want to build on it. Things that are important such as family, careers, and loved ones should be built based on the word of God or they may fall. As Jesus says in Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” Will you be able to stand when the storms of life are coming against you? Just what would you like to build in life? In Jesus Christ you have a sure, firm, and solid foundation. Build on Him and you will stand strong.
