Concept of foundation

God fits any and every sense of the concept of foundation.

I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? Psalm 56:11

Hit the wrong mark

We were created to relate to God, to reverence Him, to reflect His glory on the earth. Instead, we sinned. We missed the right mark and we hit the wrong mark.

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. Romans 3:23

Foundation problem

Unfortunately, with the rest of humanity, you and I face a foundation problem. The Bible says we crashed at the Fall.

Still, everyone died--from the time of Adam to the time of Moses--even those who did not disobey an explicit commandment of God, as Adam did. Now Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come. Romans 5:14

Purity in heart

Purity in heart before God shows transparency before God -- transparency that translates into internal honesty before God and in the undivided priority given to His kingdom.

God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God. Matthew 5:8

Feeble foundation?

The first thing in pursuing the intentional life is to take care of the first thing -- the foundation of your life. If there ever was a feeble foundation, it is your self and your soul knows it well.

As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world has been crucified, and the world's interest in me has also died. Galatians 6:14
