I’ve watched cheer squads work on their stunts. You know, building a human pyramid, stacking one on top of another to create a giant physical tower. What I noticed is that these squads always put the bigger, sturdier members on the bottom so that the one on the uppermost layer is the lightest. They do this so that the foundation will be strong enough to hold steady. (I think they want the smallest burden to be held, too.) What they are trying to achieve is a creation that will work.

The lesson is learned from the builder, who puts strong, worthy material at the base of his creation to make sure that the building holds up.

Life should be handled in the same way: build on the best foundation available. We know that foundation to be Christ and His teachings. Start with a true, strong foundation and your structure (your life) won’t falter.

 “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. . . . He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit In season and whose leaf does not wither.” (Psalm 1:1 & 3)
