TITLE: BUILDING A ROCK-SOLID FAMILY
TEXT: PROVERBS 24:3-4
Today, EVANG. DAVID OFURUM teaches:
In Matt. 7:24-27, Jesus describes two kinds of houses built by two different kinds of people: the Rock-solid House of the wise & the Sand-shaky House of the fool. Both were built with the same materials but on different foundations, & that made all the difference. Each house’s foundation reflected not the quality of its building materials but the quality of its builder. Those houses & their foundations could represent anything, including your home.
Our opening scripture tells of three crucial qualities that a man or woman who desires to build a Rock-solid family must posses: WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING & KNOWLEDGE.
You build your home with wisdom, certify it with understanding & furnish it with knowledge. But naturally, it is knowledge that leads to understanding & understanding leads to wisdom. So let’s see how it works.
KNOWLEDGE is acquired information.
UNDERSTANDING is information processed into insight with ownership.
WISDOM is the right application of relevant knowledge & insight.
So, to build a Rock-solid home, acccording to our lead scripture, you must first get relevant knowledge for a successful home, process it into personal insight & then correctly apply it. Then you must continuously use the insight you now own to certify (quality-check) that your home is properly built & you keep furnishing it by the continuous acquisition of right information.
A Rock-solid home is therefore sustained by the effect of repeating the reversed sequence of Wisdom, Understanding & Knowledge in & for every aspect of the home & every issue that may arise.
May your home be Rock-solid in Jesus’ name.
