Just like these buildings, to build a strong, magnificent "house" of our lives, we need to be built on a cornerstone. Oftentimes, if we build our lives around "cornerstones" of money, friends, family, pleasure and so on, our "house" may crumble with time or our "cornerstones" may not be able to bear the weight!
The Bible calls Jesus the chief cornerstone. When we build our lives on Him, we can be assured that He will never fail or crumble. He provides the strength we need to build upon Him. As we build, we can be certain we are building our lives exactly in alignment with who God has created us to be! And we can be sure our "house" will last into eternity!
1 Peter 2:6
See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.
