Florida State building code

A TV camera crew was on assignment in Southern Florida filming the widespread destruction of Hurricane Andrew.

In one scene, amid the devastation and debris stood one house on its foundation. The owner was cleaning up the yard when the reporter approached.

"Sir, why is your house the only one standing?" asked the reporter. "How did you manage to escape the severe damage of the hurricane?"

"I built the house myself," the man replied. "I also built it according to Florida State building code. When the code called for 2x6 trusses, I used 2x6 trusses. I was told that a house built according to code could withstand a hurricane. I did, and it did."

How about you?

Are you living according to God's code or God's word?

Or are you playing the worlds' standard and make it your our own standard way of living?

We're now seeing the signs of the times. Today...

...Pornography is everywhere.
...Premarital sex is a normal for a relationship.
...Lying is just part of day to day conversation.
...Homosexuality is becoming a new gender.
...Any sinful act has become a norm in our society.

That's why you need to be vigilant in memorizing and meditating God's word.

God would like you to live base on a solid commitment to His words and His ways.

But here's the thing...if you don't know and don't meditate His words, how can you be sure if you're still in God's perfect will?

So today, make a commitment to live fully according to God's code by memorizing and meditating scriptures.

And teach your kids and grand kids to do the same.

It's the greatest inheritance you can give your love ones.
