As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. Luke 6:47-48
Most if not all golf teaching professionals have said the grip is the foundation of the golf swing. You may get by with an improper grip for a time, but it will break down on you at the most inconvenient times. When the pressure it on, it will be shown for what it is worth.
Your foundation needs to be “firm” in the sense that it will hold up to the challenges faced on the course. It is firm, not in the sense of rigid or hard, but in something that will last and be effective in all circumstances – tournament play, the final hole of a difficult match, over a pond, or blasting out of the sand. Without a good foundation you have little hope of playing consistently in difficult circumstances.
God offers a firm foundation for life which is like that of a man building his house by digging deep into the earth and putting the house upon rock – a rock solid foundation. Such a foundation is available to anyone who comes to God, hears his words and does what God says.
Your life and my life needs the solid foundation of God’s Word.
