Though few truly plan to construct on the sand
A home, which soon crumbles and falls,
A solid foundation of faith must be laid
In stone, which supports lasting walls.
The rock is the Word of Creator and Lord,
Whose blueprint is perfectly drawn,
But some think that they know a much better way,
And end up the enemy's pawn.
It starts far ahead of the blessed marriage bed,
With purity lived every day,
For body or eyes which imbibe Satan's lies,
Lead oft to contentment decay.
It's foolish to build it with one who's not filled
With faith in foundational stone;
While you raise a wall, they will cause it to fall,
And drive you your choice to bemoan.
But equally partnered, of one mind and heart,
Construction will duly proceed;
Yes, obstacles rise, but the blueprint supplies
The plan for each home to succeed.
""Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."" Matthew 7:24-7 NIV
