On a Solid Foundation (รากฐาน) I Stand in Bangkok by Ross Oscar Knight

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Should the spiritual walls of your life be challenged, a solid foundation will allow for fortitude amidst adversity.   

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.
