I saw a picture of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and got to wondering about its construction.  As I researched I discovered there are quite a few ‘leaning’ towers around the world.  Some were built with a tilt on purpose, but most of them were due to poor planning and having the tower built with a poor foundation.  I began to wonder why people would erect buildings on such poor foundations.  I came to realize it was simply an oversight.  Through lack of planning, they built these structures on what they thought were good foundations.

    We all know that, in both the physical and spiritual sense, we need to build on a strong foundation.  Very few people intentionally build their lives on weak foundations.  In many weakness will not be immediately apparent, how do we then know if our foundation is strong?

    We need to look to God for our foundation.  In Psalms 102:25, we are told of God, “Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth.”  (KJV)  If He has laid the foundation of the earth, I think we can be assured that He is able to lay a strong foundation for our lives.
