Anyone that has ever built a house will think about where they want to build the house and how big they want it to be and what kind of material they want the house built with.
Then after you figure out where, how, and what then you also need to be thinking of the cost of the total project.

Good foundation

Anyone that has ever built a house will think about where they want to build the house and how big they want it to be and what kind of material they want the house built with.
Then after you figure out where, how, and what then you also need to be thinking of the cost of the total project.
But first let’s refer back to the title of this article and that’s building on a good foundation.

I don’t know a lot but I do know if you are going to build a house you want to build it with a good strong firm foundation. And when you put down a foundation you want to make sure you dig deep to make a foundation that cannot be moved or shaken if a storm was to come against it.

A foundation is based on what it is grounded into. If you build a house near a river or lake or ocean most of the time you will build it on wood stilts so if the water rises during a storm the house will not get flooded. The wood stilts kept the water from flooding the house but now the wind begins to blow with one hundred mile per hour winds and now with the harsh winds the wood stilt foundation begins to weaken and the house falls to the ground in ruins.

The bible is a good foundation and in the bible the book of Mathew chapter seven verse twenty six is about a parable Jesus is telling the people on where to build a house and where not to build a house.

What Jesus was telling them then and is telling us today is build a foundation that will last and is eternal and not on things that are temporary and will become ruins. Will you build a foundation on Jesus and what the word of God has to say? Or will you build a foundation on this world and its values?

In Luke chapter six and verse forty eight the bible tells us to dig a deep foundation and that is what this article is about a good deep foundation in what the word of God has to say about where you will spend eternity.
