This isn’t the greatest footage, but I think it works for what I wanted to share:
My hometeaching companion Ryan and I visited our friend Tui tonight. I heard HWN today as Ryan referenced the 2011 Japanese tsunami, and shared this scripture:
“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.” (Helaman 5:12)
Ryan pointed out that Christ as our foundation is comparable to the building these individuals were kept safe on. Leaving our foundation of Christ would be akin to these individuals jumping off to take their chances in the craziness below! Yet somehow, sometimes we metaphorically jump. When we lose perspective, maybe when we go some time without stormy weather, we forget how dangerous the ground below can be. But how dangerous is it then on the ground when the storm does come?! …These people only had about 3 minutes until the water was about as high as the building. I want to always stay on the foundation of Christ and avoid that risk!
