Check Your Foundation
I thought I found the perfect home when my family and I relocated to Iowa last year. My wife took one look at the property and asked, "where's the basement?" It didn't matter to her that the home was priced right or that two of her sisters were only blocks away. For my wife, no basement meant no safety during tornadoes. The search for the right home continued.
The home we chose came with a walk-out basement. The foundation was carved out of a gentle slope. Not only is the foundation rock-solid, the property has excellent drainage which keeps the rains out of the basement during severe storms.
Faith without a solid foundation is like a home built on top of the sand. It may look good, however, it's doomed. It has no chance of surviving stormy weather. Ask yourself this question: "Where's Jesus?" If He is your foundation, you're on solid ground. If not, it may be time to relocate. Make Him the cornerstone of your life. Check your foundation today. Let me know what you find.
