Wisdom is the foundation for which a house is built and upon it hinges Christian growth. There is worldly wisdom and Godly wisdom, one temporal and one eternal.

We live in a society that is fueled by sexual tension, propaganda, violence, and misery. Building a foundation will set the stage for their success . . . or their failure.
