As many of you know, I had planned to start the video blog this week, but alas, I have come down with a severe case of the flu, and trust me, no one wants to see that. The video blog will, thus, begin next week.
In the interim, I thought we would begin by taking a look at a fundamental concept of Biblical manhood and success in general. When it comes to your life, your family, your legacy, your success, your finances, and everything else, the buck stops with you. You are responsible!
There are two errors flourishing within the Body of Christ today. The first is the adoption of a victim mentality, in which Christians rationalize away every consequence in their life as the fault of someone or something else. “If my parents had…” “If I hadn’t been laid off…” “If the church would just…” This error is not my topic for today, but is a significant issue that we will discuss in a future post.
“At the king’s command they quarried out great, costly stones in order to lay the foundation of the house with dressed stones.” – 1 Kings 5:17
“…if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” – Psalm 11:3[shareable cite=”Psalm 11:3″]“…if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”[/shareable]
“…he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.” Luke 6:48-49
