The Wise and the Foolish Man

The Wise and the Foolish Man

When I was young, in church, we often sang a song about a wise man and a foolish man.


The Lyrics to This Song Goes as Follows:

The wise man built his house upon the rock

  And the rains came tumbling down.

The rains came down, and the floods came up…

  And the house on the rock stood still.


The foolish man built his house upon the sand

  And the rains came tumbling down.

The rains came down, and the floods came up…

  And the house on the sand washed away.


Some of life’s most important lessons often come from simple teachings – and for me, this song is absolutely one of them.


The Rain is Coming Down and the Floods are Coming Up!

I try not to sound the alarm of fear, but I cannot help but believe we are headed for difficult times.

This past couple weeks we have been hearing chatter that we are heading for another banking system collapse.

In talking with a good friend of mine who is heavily involved in the finance field, I asked him if he thought we would see other banks collapse – after the SVB one that is.

His response was both clever and accurate, he said:

“It’s like cockroaches, when you see one, you can guarantee there are more.”

I agree with this. If sure feels like we are just getting started…

The finanical mismanagment of our country's finances will inevitably have difficult consquences.


Are You Building Your Foundation on a Rock?

A “foundation” built on the sand is not going to cut it.

There are a few core areas that I feel are vitally important to ensure we are building our foundation on a ROCK, they are:







Each of these areas are core elements of who and what we are as individuals and families.

There is no way to avoid difficulty, but I do believe that if we are fortifying these areas we will be better able to tackle whatever difficulty comes our way.

If we see more of what we saw in 2008 – which is more likely a matter of when and not if – it will significantly hit our finances and spread to EVERY other other core area.

Let’s make sure we are taking proper care and doing anything that we can - with urgencey - to build ourselves and our families upon a rock foundation!

This is the essence of true freedom and how we ensure we are prepared for what lies ahead.
