“When the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
In our culture, today righteousness seems to have been lost between the cracks. Do our kids today know what a moral foundation is? Do they understand what righteousness is?
Building a Foundation
Psalms 11:3 says, “When the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Do your kids know what righteousness is? It’s not a word we hear much anymore, not even in the church. Righteousness is morally right living. But, to even talk about right living, a foundation for moral right and where it comes from must come first. Without these two things, anyone can claim to be right, especially in a society where each person gets to determine their own standards for right.
Of course, the logical end of having everyone have their own moral standard is chaos. That’s America today. Show your kids how America’s moral foundations are being destroyed. Then, challenge them, from scripture, how they can “shore them up”.
