Our Foundation

We all know the story of The 3 Little Pigs. They each build a house. One made his home from straw another made his from sticks and the last one made his out of bricks. Then the Big Bad Wolf comes to the house of straw and huffs and puffs and blows it down. Then he goes to the house made of  sticks and he huffs and he puffs and blows this house down too. Then he comes to the house made of bricks and he huffs and puffs and isn't able to blow it down. He couldn't blow it down like the other homes because it had a firm foundation that would not fail.

Just like in story of The 3 Little Pigs Satan comes to our home and he huffs and puffs and tries to blow it down. When this happens does your home still stand strong? How do we make our home made of brick instead of straw?

 In the Book of Mormon a Prophet named Helaman gives his sons advice on this very same thing. In Helaman 5:12 it says  "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

I know that if we take the advice from Helaman and build a foundation in Christ by reading the scriptures and praying for guidance in life. That not only will the quality of our life improve but when Satan comes to huff and puff to blow our home down he will fail. I leave this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
