Timed Tuesday: 10 minutes

Ok, so the hardest thing to decide on is the topic. Writing itself doesn't seem to be the difficult part.

I think I am going to write about the Rock.

This week in Bible class, we are talking about making wise decisions and referenced back to Matt. 7 where Jesus compares the wise and foolish man. In chapel this morning, Bro. Perry used this same reference. In choir, we have been singing about Jesus being our rock.

A rock is something hard, solid, steady, sure, and an excellent foundation. It stands strong in the time difficulties. Sand, on the other hand, shifts, moves, and is easily blown about. When a person builds a house, a rock-like foundation is best to build upon. The house will remain years on down the road. If built on sand, the house will be leaning after a few years.

Our lives are like the house. If we build on the things of this world, we soon will be ruined. Money, possessions, beauty all shift easily like the sand. But, if you build your life on Jesus Christ, He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He does not change and you will be able to weather the storms that may come.
