Sustaining: Building Your House

Just a quick one this week.  I thought this was neat so I would point it out.

The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.  – Proverbs 14:1

Of course, if you grew up with the “Wise Man Built His House Upon A Rock” song, perhaps like me, you started humming the tune as you read this verse in Proverbs.  Of course, this seems pretty straightforward.  Wise women build and foolish ones tear down.  There isn’t much more context to this particular verse.

But we know through the teachings of the Wise Man story in Matthew 7 that it’s what we build the house on that determines the wisdom or foolishness.

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  – Matthew 7:24

No matter what comes our way, it’s where we lay our foundation day by day that makes our house, our family, our path stable.

So where are you laying your foundation today?
