While in Bangkok I took a drive out to a small village. After spending time connecting with different people in the community, I noticed two men mixing concrete. Luckily, they invited me over to observe. I spent the next hour watching the men diligently lay a foundation for their home.
During my daily devotion this morning I was led to ponder these scriptures:
Luke 6 (KJV)
46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
47Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
48He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
49But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
