My husband and I have owned three houses and it didn't take me long at all to realize how critical the foundation is to a house. The outside can look beautiful, the kitchen might be magnificent, but if the foundation isn't sound, you're going to run into problems. So when I read Proverbs 24:3 "By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established" it resonated with me. I got the message loud and clear that I have to have a solid foundation for my life (house) which can only come from my taking in and storing up godly knowledge and understanding through time in God's Word. 

So what's the current state of your "foundation"? What are you doing to build and maintain your "house" on godly knowledge, understanding and wisdom? Tami W.
