He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:3 (NKJV)
When looking for a builder to construct your home, your most important question is: “Are his homes well built?” The Scriptures refer to the importance of a well-crafted Christian life that can withstand the pressures of living.
The well-built life follows God’s design. The solid Christian seeks to do the Father’s will, not his own. Do you walk in the paths God has ordained, or do you continually insert SELFISH CHANGES of direction?
The well-built life has a solid foundation. That foundation is a love for and obedience to the Word of God. Anything built on PERSONAL PREFERENCE will crack eventually. Adherence to biblical principles always brings lasting results.
The well-built-life is faithful in the little things. The attention to detail distinguishes a good builder. A loyal disciple of Christ is steadfast and careful in small as well as large things: the tone of your voice, your reactions to frustration, and what you watch on TV.
By having your heart bent toward God, your convictions based on God’s Word, and your actions consistent, you will withstand the tests of time.
