I was getting ready to fix a little item around the house this week, which meant that I needed to stick something that had come adrift.
Before I started, I realised I needed to prepare the two surfaces properly before I tried to do the sticking.
Preparation is a critical step in any task that we might set out to undertake, isn’t it, whether it’s doing some glueing, painting, planting or even getting treatment for an illness?
If we don’t undertake thorough and proper preparation, the job we are starting to undertake has less chance of lasting as long as we would like.
If we consider that preparation is important for something in our lives here and now, how much more important is it to prepare for the time when we are going to move from our earthly lives to our lives beyond those on earth.
Jesus taught this principle in the parable of the wise and foolish builders.
The wise builder used a firm foundation and the foolish built on sand.
Here Jesus reminds us the importance of having the right preparation in our lives by building our hope and life on the truths of the Bible.
It is having this preparation, or foundation, that will allow us confidence to know we will enjoy the wonder of being in God’s presence forever.
Have you prepared for eternity, properly?
