Evaluate where you spend your time, money and thought. What are you building and what are you building upon?

Matt 7:24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%207&version=NASB1995#fen-NASB1995-23341o]acts on them, [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%207&version=NASB1995#fen-NASB1995-23341p]may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%207&version=NASB1995#fen-NASB1995-23342q]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%207&version=NASB1995#fen-NASB1995-23343r]act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%207&version=NASB1995#fen-NASB1995-23344s]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”

The Gospel is consequential…if that tomb was empty, stop over investing in this world at the expense of the next.

1 Cor 15: 16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised; 17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.

COT: Butterknife brought us a word last week on forgiveness and I wanted to build on that some today as well. The model prayer that Jesus gives is very familiar to many. Do we ever just glaze over something that we read and not grasp the details? YHC is guilty for sure! I want to call a particular detail to your attention in this prayer.
‭‭Matthew 6:7 NASB1995‬‬
[7] “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.
[9] “Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. [10] Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. [11] Give us this day our daily bread. [12] And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. [13] And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’] [14] For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. [15] But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.”
In verse 12, Jesus tells us to pray to God to “…forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” What are our debts and who are our debtors? Jesus provides the answer in verses 14 and 15. They are our transgressions and those who sin against us, respectively. There is also a tiny little qualifying word in there too: if. Jesus is telling us that if we withhold forgiveness from others, God will do the same thing to us.

Are you going to God with your problems and asking that God give you the solution you desire or are you laying your troubles before God and seeking his will?

I know, I personally struggle with this. Most recently I have been pursuing new employment to cut back on my travels and time away from my family. I’ve been diligent in my prayers and seeking God. It was when my answer came not as a new job but as my current role putting things in my court to solve the problem and letting me do just that. I then realized this entire time I’ve been seeking God to solve things my way and not trusting in his infinite wisdom.

Proverbs 3: 5-6 states:
5.Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
6.Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

John 3:30 (ESV) states:
He must increase, I must decrease

This is not a negative position even though it sounds like we must become less the realty is we can only become greater through him. Zach Williams’ song Less Like me chorus says it simply.
A little more like mercy, a little more like grace
A little more like kindness, goodness, love and faith
A little more like patience, a little more like peace
A little more like Jesus, a little less like me

Similar to what @Biohack said, are we seeking Gods wisdom like Solemn?

doing hard things is inevitable. They will come find you, so instead go find them and practice. Grit isn’t an inborn trait, but a developed capability. I see hard things in three broad categories: physical strain (an F3 specialty), mental strain (such as enduring prolonged pain and discomfort e.g., fasting), and learning/changing strain (enduring doing things you’re not good at). Probably not airtight categories, but they help me sort out what I need to work on.
So get out there and do hard things so you’ll be good at it when the hard things comes and finds you.
