The wicked are overthrown and are no more, But the house of the righteous will stand (Proverbs 12:7, NKJV). Many people think and plan on building a house (or idea), but they do so on that which is a foundation of sand. Given enough time or the right circumstances, that idea or house will wash away with the water coming ashore. This image is easily pictured in one’s mind. The one who builds on the foundation of Jesus, however, is sure to stand firm when the storms of life come – and they will sure come. RT
