How strong is your house?
From time to time the construction quality of structures are tested. Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and other natural disasters test the integrity of houses and buildings.
A few months ago, I had a conversation with a gentleman in our church that reminded me of the importance of building wisely. He was a retired engineer who worked for years designing large building structures in an earthquake-prone part of the world. He described the immense pressure and responsibility he felt to get each design right. He knew people’s lives depended on a well-built building.
Jesus talked about this. Look at His words in Matthew 7:24, 25 (TLB) “All who listen to my instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents, and the floods rise and the storm winds beat against his house, it won’t collapse, for it is built on rock.”
Whether you realize it or not, you are a builder. You are building a life, perhaps a family, friendships, work reputation, and most importantly, an eternity. How you build matters. You will build wisely or foolishly. Make sure you build with Jesus’ standards. When you use His building code, you’re assured of quality construction!
