 #135 Choosing Your Path | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 635

In the book Mere Christianity, CS Lewis tells about how if we get a little worse over time, it won't really really matter in 70 years. But if you believe in eternity, and you continue to get a little worse over time, you will eventually create an absolute hell. Our daily actions determine what path we are currently taking. Do you like the end of your path? Will your path bring you joy or put you in hell? Check out today's podcast episode to see what path you are currently taking.

 134 Build Your Foundation | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 467

The word foundation means: the lowest load-bearing part of a building. Sometimes we often feel that we are bearing a heavy load. A heavy load built upon a weak foundation will crush us. In the scriptures, we learn that in order to within stand the storm we need to build on a solid foundation. The foolish man built on sand, and his house washed away. You are going to face storms and heavy burdens, but if you can learn to be like the wise man, you will be able to weather the storm. Check out today's podcast to hear more.
