Recently, in Southern California, scientist built a 5 story building on a foundation that they can shake from side to side like an earthquake. The point of the building is to shake it as much as possible over the next few months in order to learn what happens to the building during an earthquake.
The experiment’s results should help engineers design more earthquake-safe buildings that will improve safety when future quakes shake an area. The truth is, we all go through “earthquakes” in our lives; whether we stand or fall depends on our foundation.
In Matthew 7, Jesus said, “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.”
I love the song that reminds us, “On Christ the solid rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.” Where do you stand today? Think about it and Have a Blessed Day!
