Founded on the Rock

 

 

Dry erase markers.

They’re wonderful, aren’t they?

If you need to make information available on a board for a short amount of time and then update it or get rid of it, dry erase markers are perfect.

Perfect, but not permanent.

If you need something to last, a permanent marker will have to be used.

Let’s suppose that you work in a restaurant–

Imagine spending a morning meticulously writing and drawing the basic menu on a very large board that will be hanging above the order counter. 

Stepping back to admire your masterpiece, a coworker casually walks by and accidentally brushes against the board.

To your horror, you see that a large section of your precious creation has been erased or smudged.

Looking more closely at the markers, in great disappointment, you realize they were dry erase, not permanent.

We can spend our entire lives–not just a morning at work–building for our future, planning here, going there.

Attending school, getting married, having children, advancing in a career, excelling at a hobby—those are noble endeavors.

But if we are not doing these things with God as our foundation, they will not have any permanent significance.

It will be as though they were created with dry erase markers—their essence will be brushed away.

If God is the foundation as we build our lives, what is truly important in His eyes will remain, perhaps not physically, but with eternal significance.

Jesus said,

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

–Matthew 7:24-27
