We’ve all seen the aftermath of earthquakes and the damage that was caused by them. Some buildings crumble while others are left standing. The reason some stand is because their foundation was strong enough to bear the stress of the earthquake. All the buildings were put to the test, but only those with the strongest foundations stood.
In a similar way, all men face stress in their lives. Some men are able to go through it, still standing when it is all done, while others crumble and fall. Standing up to stress means staying faithful to your spouse, being disciplined to go to work each day, working hard, and maintaining a moral and spiritual focus. Crumbling means you take the easy way out, giving up on your marriage, getting drunk or high, or even immersing yourself in pornography to hide from the stress. At some point in our lives, we will all face trials and storms, but my question is, “Will what you are building stand, or will it be washed away by the pressures of life?” The bottom line is what do you believe? And more importantly why?
A Legacy Minded Man, a man of God, is ruled by the book, the bible, the very Word of God! If the Bible is not his game plan for life then he will fail. The gospel of Matthew speaks specifically about just that in chapter 7:24-27 but raises the question as to whether we have built our house on the sand or the rock.
Have you ever taken the time to think about what you believe? I mean what you really believe. What can you do today to get closer to God and find out what He has for you? Don’t delay. After all its good for the soul!
