Inspirations for Christians - Hopeful and Meaningful and Positive!


The Two Builders

Their are two kinds of builders
the foolish and the wise
one digs deep and the others compromise

The wise man digs through layers of gravel, dirt and sand
His house is securely anchored to the rock to be able to withstand
He anticipated there would be stormy days that only the rock
could sustain
He knew the rock wouldn't wash away in the flood or crumble
in the rain.

The foolish man will take a look at the sight
and begins to build, even if it is not right
He doesn't anchor the house on anything other than


vulnerable sand
which will easily wash away, his building unplanned

The wise man takes the blocks of Jesus' Word
he responds in obedience to what he has heard
It becomes a part of his everyday life
Even through hard and trying times
he is committed to doing what's right
The foolish man hears and understands
goes to church and refuses to do what The Lord commands.

Both builders want a house that's secure
but only one builds on a foundation that will endure

Foolish or wise, which are you -
the time will come, will yours stand or fall through?
