      Matthew 6:19,21  "Don't store up treasures here on earth, where moths
      eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal.
      Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also
      be."

      Castles in the Sand

      Before the sun was up too high in the heavens, and it was hotter than
      blue blazes, my grandaughter and I ventured down to the beach.

      Right away we noticed a beautiful sandcastle! It had survived the night
      somehow. Even though it was intricate and had obviously taken some time
      to do, the rising morning tide would surely wash it away.

      We can build our lives on many things.  Possessions, money, business,
      identity. They will all, one day, be washed away. We didn't bring
      anything into this world, and we can't take anything out of it – except
      our relationship with the Lord. That is forever.

      I thought about an action Sunday school song the kids used to sing (
      Luke 6:47-79 ) -
      The wise man built his house upon the rock... ......and the rain came tumbling
      down. The rain came down and the floods came up........ and the wise man's
      house stood firm.
      But- the foolish man built his house upon the sand...., and the rain came
      tumbling down. The rain came down and the floods came ..., .....and the
      foolish man's house went SPLAT!!
      So -build your life on the Lord Jesus Christ.........and the blessings
      will come down. The blessings come down and the prayers go
      up........so- build your life on the Lord!!

      As beautiful as the sandcastles of our lives may be, they are still just
      that: sandcastles. How awesome we can build our lives on the love and
      faithfulness of the Lord and the principles of His Word.

      That is good news.
