When it comes to the construction, you always start with the foundation because the foundation supports the entire structure and, as a result, determines the structure’s integrity. Just ask the wise and foolish builders. In one of Jesus’ most memorable parables, we learn some important truths about foundations, and we’ll seek to apply those truths to our homes because if we want our homes to improve then we need a ﬁrm foundation.
24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” – Matthew 7:24-27
