Building for Tomorrow

If the foundations be destroyed, What can the righteous do?

(Psalm 11: 3).

Foundation of a building is very important and fundamental. It is likened to the spinal cord in man that keeps the body upright. Jesus, while rounding up His sermon on the mount spoke of the wise and the foolish. These two categories of people actually built their houses which might look alike but the differences were identified by the type of foundation they laid before building the houses.

The wise laid his foundation upon a rock but the foolish laid his own upon the sand. Both houses were however subjected to the same tests, “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house” (Matthew 7: 24-27). The two builders got different results for the wise man’s house “fell not: for it was founded upon a rock, but the foolish man’s house “fell: and great was the fall of it”.

Your teenage years are foundational to your future prospects. Young boys and girls who waste their youthful years cannot reach the peak of success at the right time if they eventually get to it at all. The Years wasted in youthful exuberant are irreversible. It is a wise attitude to be discreet, diligent and discipline in your teenage years to plan and prepare for a brighter tomorrow.

Your future career depends solely on how excellent you can perform in the appropriate subjects that will qualify you for the course of your dream in a university. Actually, this formed the wise academic foundation in the words of the Lord Jesus. Since nobody can do anything to rescue a house that is built on a faulty foundation, there is nothing much any one can do to help a person who wasted his youthful years in riotous living.

Challenge: Teenage years are foundational to your future prospects
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, help me to lay a good foundation for my future through had labour.
