How Do You Build A House?
The answer is….little by little and very carefully. Who will live there…you? Will the house you build see you through life’s storms and trials? What is the first essential step you must address? Why it’s the foundation of course. The foundation you lay down will be responsible for carrying the unseen and unexpected forces of life and nature; and from this house you will go on to build a life for yourself. How good a life depends on a number of things. Since this house is to be your shelter, fortress and palace of leisure it is of extreme importance you select only the best quality materials for this lifetime structure. Knowledge, wisdom and truth are as essential to success as water is to cement. It is the binding agent that allows you to proceed with a firm and solid foundation. There is a lot of knowledge in the world but not all of it is of value. You must discern what is good and what isn’t. How will you choose only the knowledge that is good and reject that knowledge which is of no value and even hurtful? You have to have a set of plans or call it a blueprint for your life. What you plan now and execute will determine what your life will be. Wisdom says if you are planning to build something then look for examples of other things that are similar to what you wish to build. Is it not wisdom to look at the builder and creator of all that is around you and even of those things you can not see and seek His advice and counsel? Fortunately for us He did leave a book of instructions that will guide you into building the perfect foundation for your life. In it you will find words of wisdom of how to have a healthy body, of how to acquire the wisdom you seek by talking to the supreme architect of this entire world and universe and even more importantly of how to exchange this worldly structure made of mortal material for a supremely better one made of spiritual material that will last forever. Your mind is where you acquire information and values. Perhaps it will be from the streets or even a college classroom where you will be taught. If your teacher is teaching you the wrong values then your values will probably be wrong.. This has a definite effect on your mind. What you consume, understand and accept as truth will determine your course of action. Just because someone is designated as a teacher does not necessarily mean that this teacher is teaching truth. If when having a house built your contractor left you the house blueprints showing everything regarding the electrical circuits, the heating system and everything else you need to know if and when you needed to make repairs would you not refer to the blueprints so that any repairs would be done correctly? The same principle applies to your body structure. You consult the master architect who created it. What blueprint did He leave for you? It’s called the Holy Bible. In it the Creator has left detailed plans for every contingency. You need only consult it and Him to have the body and life you desire. This is your body and this is your life. Choose godly wisdom and it will provide you with joy and eternal life. As I See It, this is Roy Lamont
