Building Plans

If you’ve ever stood on a mountain peak or stared out at a vast ocean, you’ve probably sensed God’s closeness in those moments. The glory of creation is a visible reminder of the majesty of God. Our scriptural landscape is filled with metaphors taken from our natural landscape, and today’s readings put those metaphors to the test: Have we built our lives on a foundation of rock — the “eternal Rock” mentioned in Isaiah — or have we taken a shortcut, setting ourselves up with a comfy spot on soft sand that looks sturdy from the outside but is sure to collapse when the first storm comes through? Explore the spiritual landscape you’ve chosen. Spend some time there today and ponder whether your foundation is firm or perhaps needs some shoring up.
