A new house is going up near where I live. First a lot of trees were removed. Then workers put together a wooden form. I thought it was for the concrete base, but it wasn’t. They had carefully measured and built the wooden form to show how uneven the ground was underneath, so truckloads of fill dirt could come in to level the ground. The fill dirt is not sand, either, like the soil common to our area. All this preliminary work takes time but shows how important a good foundation is to a building. No matter how well the house is built, if the foundation is faulty, the whole structure is at risk. It’s a good reminder. Spiritual houses, if they are to stand, must be firmly founded on Jesus Christ, the solid Rock of our salvation.
