There are lots of nice things you can do with sand; but do not try building a house upon it. That quote was so eloquently phrased by the acclaimed C.S. Lewis, and for me personally I had many things to reflect upon it. In reading the first part, adding to not pinning your life on any one human being, I also incorporated objects with it because it changed how I saw it. Material things are a dan-gerous thing to get caught up in, and it is very important to remember and hone in on only the things that actually matter. The first part overall meant to me that we should focus on God, and not pinning ourself to the idols that we create in our life. Having faith in Him will also open us up to our true potential, and we can also gain things for ourselves; such as wisdom. The second part is alluding to Matthew 7 where the wise and foolish men were building houses. The house built by the wise man stood upon a rock, and the foolish man built his upon sand. The sand is representing sin, desires, and temptations in our life and how destructive and toxic they can be because as we know, it is quoted from the Bible in Matthew 7:26-27: But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash. With this we must always remember that we should never idolize or make anything or anyone more important than God. Some things may seem good, but it may not be right for us, and if we invest such things in our life it can destroy us. We must not lean on our own understanding, rather, trust in The Lord and he will keep our paths straight. | 2 |'
