WISE AND FOOLISH FOUNDATIONS
By Rev. Dean Beaty 5/1/08
Two men began to build their house.
They hoped their home would last.
Perhaps they built to please their spouse.
To protect from winterís blast.
Upon a rock the wise man built.
He knew the rains would fall.
He did not want his house to tilt.
When deluged by a squall.
The foolish man didnít plan so well.
He built upon the sand.
And when the streams began to swell,
His house just could not stand.
The foolish man had quite a shock.
His house crumbled away.
The wise man built upon a rock,
For it was there to stay.
Christ is the rock we build upon,
Godís own eternal Son.
He paid the price, our sins are gone.
For us salvationís won.
