When we started building our home, we first had to dig the foundation. I called a friend of mine to see if the dirt bed would be strong enough for the structure to sit on. He came to the site, dug some, and said this area will be great, it is solid.
Building a firm foundation in our spiritual life is important. We need to build it on a firm foundation. Jesus said in Matthew 7:25, "The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock."
