46 “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say? 47 I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. 48 It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. 49 But anyone who hears and doesn’t obey is like a person who builds a house right on the ground, without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.” (Luke 6:46-49 NLT)
A solid foundation, no matter what we are talking about, is the key to sustainability. If a foundation is weak then whatever is built upon it will be easily shaken. Our faith most of all.
Building a strong faith upon the foundation and following of the Word will allow us to weather life’s storms.
