Thursday December 1st: Strong foundation

Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord”, will enter the kingdom of heaven

Matthew 7: 21, 24 – 27

I love watching home renovation shows and one of the surprising things I learnt was that despite the house standing the foundation may have issues.

When building we like to believe that it is done properly using quality materials, placing a lot of trust in the builders. Even if it is done perfectly, as time goes by, wear and tear and natural disasters can affect the foundation. While the house may not fall or appear to be damaged, cracks may appear in the foundation. This can be near impossible to identify unless work is being done.

Spiritually speaking, if we’re not constantly working to ensure our foundation is strong, the house can come crumbling down when an unexpected challenge arises.

I pray that this Advent Season I work to strengthen my spiritual foundation and grow closer to you, Lord. Amen
