The life of a believer is very much like a tower.
For the building of this height to stand,
the depth of its foundation has to be equally deep into the earth or sufficient.
Similarly, for a Christian to be in the right standing before God and man,
he has to base the foundation of his faith solely on the Word of God and Prayer,
nothing more, nothing less.
Anything else will only weaken one’s foundation.
Sure these are basics, but these are the foundations of our faith.
