A Foundation Built Upon The Rock

A Foundation Built Upon The Rock

I made reference to a lighthouse earlier this week. I’m not entirely sure what’s going on here, but I wish to make reference to that lighthouse again. I don’t know what my fascination is with a lighthouse this week, but I have been unable to forget thinking about them.

As important as it is to let your light shine, as is the case of a lighthouse, it is equally important as to it’s location. Because, location is just as equally important as the actual light. Really, what good is a lighthouse without its light? It’s virtuously worthless.

No matter where you go in the world, a lighthouse is built on a solid foundation. More than likely, a foundation built upon the rocks. You wouldn’t want it built on a beach would you? This is the same principle as the wise man who built his house upon the rocks.

The wise man knew that if he built his house on sand, with time and enough storms (or trials), that the sand around him and beneath him would soon be washed away. So, in his wisdom, he built it upon the rocks. Rocks are much, much stronger. And, they are a lot harder to move. If you build your house on the rocks, you are far less likely to have your house washed away.

Same thing with a lighthouse. Lighthouses are built on rocks so that they can withstand the forces of the ocean and all the storms that they encounter. Many people depend on the light to be seen from the lighthouse.

It’s much like life. We have the light of Christ within us, and we are able to withstand a great deal of storms in our lives. But, only if we build our foundation on the rock. In this case, the rock that we should build our foundation is that of Christ. If we do so, then we will have a strong enough foundation for our house to give off the light of Christ.
