So when the wind and rain burst against that house, it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock Two builders: foolish and wise; two foundations: sand and rock; two outcomes: destruction and stability.Christ’s analogy applies to marriage just as much as to houses.Let’s compare these two building approaches more closely.The world’s concept of engagement is a breakable proposal, but biblical betrothal is a binding promise to marry.At every point God’s design for a male/female relationship is more serious and more guarded because God knows how vulnerable the human heart is.Though they may look alike on the surface, these two practices of relationship building are really very dissimilar at every point and result in radically different outcomes.
