Woe to him who builds his house without righteousness And his upper rooms without justice, Who uses his neighbor’s services without pay And does not give him his wages, Jeremiah 22:13
What are you building your life upon? What are you building your family upon? What are you building your career upon? Are you doing it with righteousness or deceit? Many people today live with the mentality of “Dog Eat Dog” meaning you need to step on people to get further. Problem is your building a Kingdom with no solid foundation, eventually it will all fall down
Israel was doing the same thing. They were building there nation based on violence and idolatry (sound familiar?). God warned them if they continue this their nation would “become a pile of rubble” (Jeremiah 22:5).
Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24
Jesus said if you build your life on the Word of God, its like building on a rock foundation. The question is are you building for temporary or eternity? Sure if you want to live life in the fast lane, crash and burn, then build on the sand. However if you want eternal life. If you want to live in the presence of Jesus, then build on the Rock (Jesus Christ)
