Matthew 7:24 Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
Have you ever used a primer in your makeup routine? If not, seriously you have GOT to try one! There are different kinds of primers for different makeup applications. Some are used as a base for eyeshadow and they offer benefits like helping your eyeshadow last longer, refrain from creasing, and appear more vibrant. Then there are foundation primers, which are applied to the skin before putting on foundation. These primers can have many different perks like blurring fine lines, making pores appear smaller, and making sure your foundation lasts a long time. The common goal of both products is to provide a solid base for you to create a better-looking, longer-lasting makeup look.
The Word of God is our spiritual primer. In order for us to build our lives in such a way that will be pleasing to Him, strong enough to last through the harshest situations, and a beautiful example to others, His Word needs to be the base we build upon. Without our Heavenly Father’s teachings at the root of everything we do, nothing we build will ever last. As soon as the first storm hits us, we’ll crumble and wash away just like makeup applied without a primer.
Focus word of the week: BUILD - Focus on how you are building your life through your daily actions. Are you building on the Word of God, or the words of the world?
A Step Further: Write down this week's verse on a sticky note and put it on the mirror when you get ready in the mornings. Read it each morning to remind yourself to put on your spiritual "primer" to begin each day.
