Not Blowing My House Down

Mathew 7;24-27

In this scripture, we read about knowing that God’s word is like building a house on a rock; when we have that strong foundation, we can not fall or be shaken. Remind you of another story? As a child, I’m sure you heard  the story of “The Three Little Pigs”.  Let me recap for you; there were 3 little pig brothers, all of them were building a house. The first little pig decided he would build his house out of wood. Oh it was a beautiful house, very comfortable and just what he wanted. The second little pig wanted his house up quickly; so, he decided to build his house out of straw. He felt so proud because he was finished in no time. The third little pig, the smartest of the 3, decided he would build his house out of bricks. It took him a little longer, placing each brick perfectly to be the best it could be. Then one day, the big bad wolf comes along. He goes to the first two little pigs houses and huffs and puffs and blows their houses right over causing them to scramble to the third brothers house (the one that built his house out of bricks) for safety. That wolf huffed and puffed and could not even shake that house. When we build our lives (houses) from a sturdy foundation (our God), we will never be shaken or fall apart and can weather any (wolf) that comes along! Have a blessed day! 🙂
