Building Your Life On Someone Else’s Words

Just read this on Justin Buzzard’s blog.  Great challenge for all of our lives.

“You are building your life on somebody’s words.

Words form the foundation of every life. Whose words are you building your life on? There are many options. You can build your life on:

  • Your non-stop negative self-talk
  • What a false friend says about you
  • The lies Satan whispers
  • The idea that you can earn enough credit to get God and other people to love you
  • Belief that there are many gods, nobody’s truth claims/words are true in an absolute sense–what  you believe doesn’t really matter, there is no ultimate accountability in this universe

Those are just five of the options. These days most people are building their lives on a mixture of words.

Words matter. You’re standing on words right now. Do you like where you’re standing?

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” –Jesus”
