Have you ever been to a really old church building or maybe an old mansion or museum made out of stone? If you walked around the outside of the building you may have seen what is called the cornerstone. The cornerstone is a large stone in one corner of the building. It is used to mark where all of the other stones go so that the building will be built properly. In some of the older buildings the cornerstone is even marked so that you can see which one it is. Some of them might have the date that the building was built and maybe even the name of the person who owned the building and had it built. The cornerstone is the most important part of the foundation. Every other stone had to line up with the cornerstone.
We must build our lives on the right foundation. The foundation that we should build our lives on is our solid Rock – Jesus and his word. When our lives are built on Him we will remain strong no matter what the storms are that come into our lives. What a blessing it is to be able to rest in Him.
And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
- Matthew 16:18 (King James Version)
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, starting today, we are going to build a better foundation for our life on the rock of Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
