The Construction of Your Life

In the year 2,150 B.C, the Babylonian Empire, knowing how to build a house was already fundamental. Everything was governed by the code of Hammurabi. The law number 229 declared: If a builder builds a house and does not do it with good resistance and the house collapses killing the occupants, the builder must be executed immediately.
 
This law seemed very drastic and deadly Yet for the rulers, it helped to control accidents and have better construction of quality as well as resistance to be able to any type of climate and natural disasters.
 
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. Matthew 7:24-25
 
When Jesus came to earth and lived in the midst of the men of his time, he understood how indispensable it was to have a good house for the protection of your family and he knew that every good construction depended on a good foundation.
 
But he went even further as to using the example of construction to talk about the heart of the human being and life. In doing so he was comparing the house that is built on the rock with one that was built on the sand. The two houses were tested by the same storms, but the results were remarkably different: one resisted and the other fell.
 
Every day we can meet people whose lives are based on vain and transient things, which produces a false peace and tranquility in which vanishes almost immediately. But there are also people who assure their life about the eternal and true, that produces permanent peace and tranquility.
 
What has been the foundation in your life? 
Have you built wisely?
 
If it has been the opposite and your life has fallen because of storms, today you can approach God and secure your life on a sure and eternal foundation. Here are Houston First we want to help you build your foundation with God’s help.
