Foundations : building a life that can withstand

Matthew 7:24–27 ESV
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
Foundation are everything
everything depends on the foundation
when a foundation is is weak then eventually the structure will fall
Jesus gives a teaching and closes it with
“Those who hears these words and does them.”
Opening Up Matthew Principles of Holiness (7:1–29)

The distinction here is not between those who hear Jesus and those who do not, but between those who hear and obey and those who hear but do not obey

If we don’t have foundations we will fall for anything
We end up believing what we are told
God is the creator-
Gen 1:
Genesis 1:1 ESV
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
To create-

make something that has not been in existence before

When we think of creating something it is for a purpose
the creator determines what the creation is for

each one of these inventors created something for a purpose
