A foundation provides the groundwork

So the load of a structure sits;

And when it’s solid and it’s steadfast

There’s much safety in our midst.

A moral foundation is paramount

Of a way of life or belief,

If there’s to be stability, order and respect

Where kindness and love will meet.

A foundation is an anchor

And cemented with solid trust;

And if anything is to stand and remain

A good foundation is a must.

When Jesus Christ is our foundation

Where our hope and faith is laid;

It’s a surety with clarity

And where wise decisions are made.

He’s the anchor of our soul

But will lift our every burden,

Whilst building on our foundation

With a faith and love that’s certain.

Because the wisdom of this world

Is foolishness to the Lord;

Since it may be self-gratifying

And not according to His word.

Jesus is our foundation

And if we build on anything less,

It will not stand the test of time

And will ultimately fail the test.

A good moral foundation is imperative

If it’s to bear the heavy load;

With the winds, storms and elements

since it reaps what it has sowed.

God cannot be mocked

As our work will be revealed by fire,

And as to whether our foundation was in Christ

Or built on the sand of our desires.
