Ice Berg or Ice Floe

When looking at the Arctic Ice in Canada, there are two forms that you find. Ice Bergs and Ice Floes.

Ice Floes are shallow ice, easily moved by the wind and waves and are subject to erratic movement and shifting constantly. They are not firmly planted.

Ice Bergs are deeply rooted with only 10% being visible above the water line. The ice bergs are not easily moved. They are stable.

Which one best represents you in your life. Are you easily moved by the circumstances of life around you, or are you firmly planted in who you are and what you believe. The only sure footing that we can have in our lives is in placing our trust and our lives on the solid foundation given to us in Jesus Christ.

In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus tells the story of the wise and foolish builders. I would encourage you to read that passage again today. Which one are you?
