THE HOUSE ON THE SAND
And everyone that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: (Matt 7:26)
The house built on the sand symbolizes a spiritual life built on the foundation of human opinions, attitudes, and wills, which are always shifting and unstable. If you build your life on this foundation, you are building it on self–will, self-sufficiency, selfrighteousness, self-purpose, and self–fulfillment. If you choose sandy foundations, your life will be based on false teaching and will fall short of salvation—“always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim. 3:7).
Don’t be like the one who superficially and carelessly chooses a section of the world’s sand to build his hope on. Instead, be concerned about the depth of spiritual reward that comes with wisely considering and carefully choosing God’s solid foundation.
Have a Joyful day!
