What's Your Foundation?

Upon what are you building your life? What is it that brings definition and security to your life?

Typically some build their life upon accomplishments such as athletics, academics or career. Some build their life upon accumulation such as money and the things that money can buy. Some build their lives upon significant relationships so that their spouse or their children become their life.

Take a few minutes and reflect upon the video linked here. My comments below are in light of the video--

Our world is changing more rapidly than ever. What we know and experience today will be radically different in a decade.

It has always been true that the only foundation worthy to build a human life upon is the Person of God. Knowing God, rightly relating to God and following God with a whole heart is the only foundation that will not be “sinking sand” (Matthew 7:24-27).

I think this reality will be more obvious in the near future than ever before. Change, obsolescence, insecurity and anxiety will become more characteristic of those with a faulty foundation.

A word to the wise is sufficient. Get to know God. Establish friendship with God. Build your one and only life upon God.
