Matthew 7:24-27 24"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. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
If you, like me, want to your life to be more than just “Footprints in the sand” then we need to build our life on more than just mere sand! We need to build our lives on the ROCK, and the ROCK is Jesus.
But here is a question maybe you are asking yourself: HOW?
Matthew 6:20-21 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
How do we build our lives on the ROCK? We INVEST in what really matters, what really lasts forever… PEOPLE! When we invest in people we are storing up treasures in heaven!
To me, living a life only caring for myself, mine, me and my is living a Footprints in the sand kind of life. A life that will not be remembered! A life that will be forgotten! But living a life that gives, serves and helps others is a life that is remembered for eternity! Especially when we are “helping” people grow in their faith!
