MATTHEW 7:26_shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand.
Sandy soil is no substitute for rock. The foundation of your life must be rock solid! There is nothing solid about sand. It slides right through your fingers. A gust of wind can toss it away.
The only way to live out the salty-lit-up life is to live out the teachings of Jesus. Anything else, and I do mean anything, is sandy soil.
Proverbs 24:10 (KJV), “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.” You will lack courage and lose heart if you choose to face life’s storms from the world’s standards. Jesus calls this foolish. A foolish person is someone who makes poor decisions.
Romans chapter 1 (KJV) says it well, “21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”
Sounds to me like foolish people do not glorify God, because they are not grateful. The foolish imagine themselves to be wise.
That’s how you become foolish. Thinking you’re wise. No need for God.
Wise God, Please give me a grateful heart which glorifies who You are. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ wants me to make courageous decisions—I will!
