Foundations

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about foundations.  Probably because we’re starting an exciting new phase of the ministry here in Roatan – building a permanent school building.

ImageFoundations. Do we use wood posts or concrete posts?  Wood is much less expensive. Concrete is much stronger and will hold up better over time. I can hear my Dad saying, “A strong foundation is essential. Not just in building but in life.” We decided to go with concrete. Better to spend money on the foundation than on embellishments.IMGP5713IMGP5725 Image 10

Foundations.  Not too aesthetically pleasing.  Not something you think about until there’s a problem.  Sometimes, while building a foundation you have to dig deeper than anticipated. But, the digging deeper now will prevent problems later.

 

Jesus used the analogy and we sing about it quite frequently at school. Remember “The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock”? The physical foundations are important. The spiritual foundations have eternal value.

 

Oh what foundation is my life built? What foundation are we helping our students build? On what foundation is this ministry built?

 

 

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord.

Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!

What more can He say than to you He hath said,

To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

*How Firm a Foundation — John Rippon! !
