Foundation of life

Tuesday August 14th, Hebrews 11: 8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. At this time in scripture there was still a rural preference. The nomadic way of life was considered good and the settled way of life bad. Stories such as Cain and Ables offering and Sodom and Gomorrah reflect this sentiment. But if we could be so bold as to assume a God inspired flow through the multiple stories, authors, and writings that make up scripture, then let us turn to the Holy City in Revelation. If there will ever be such a city with foundations and whose architect and builder is God, it will be the Holy City. In that city, which was the dream of Abraham and everyone who calls themselves a child of God, the river is for life, the trees for the healing of nations, the gates are never closed, all are welcome and God is among us. That is a foundation to build a life toward.
