The rabbits, people who are not trying hard and they put their house in stone; Proverbs 30:26 (Of the smallest on earth, counted among the wise)
Rabbits are basically scrub animals that today, in addition to the places of many trees and thick vegetation, are also seen in crops with thick walls and hedges that provide them with all the variety of plant matter from which they obtain their food. However, the rabbit will never stray too far from the thick vegetation, nor from the thick dry stone walls, where it has its shelters.
What a beautiful example that the Bible brings us through the way of life of rabbits, nothing is more impressive when the word of God says that they are not hard at all, that is, they do not carry out their daily work with so much effort, but on the contrary, they survive by feeding on the vegetation they find in their path ... but there is something beautiful that was given to them from above, from their Creator, the care where they build their home ... and it is generally between rocks ... instinctively they care about having a safe place for them and their large family ... This is called awareness of danger ... they are fully aware of the danger that threatens them, therefore they know that they must make their home a very safe place, and for that they chose nothing less than the stones.
This reminds me when the Lord Jesus said that:
Whoever hears these words and does them will be compared to a prudent man, who built his house on the rock. Matthew.7: 24 ... prudent: having understanding, also has to do with self-control, practical wisdom ... prudence can come from our own heart, or from God, since Proverbs. 3: 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And do not lean on your own prudence ... that is to say that not all human prudence will lead us to make wise decisions, because the wisdom from on high is what truly makes us make decisions according to to the heart of God… whoever hears me, and does, says Jesus.
Isaiah 17:10 Because you forgot the God of your salvation, and did not remember the rock of your refuge; therefore you will sow beautiful plants and plant strange branches.
Jesus was urging prudence, understanding, to be aware of danger but not only to that, if not giving a promise to reward that virtue that only comes from Him; He said that rain would descend, rivers would come, winds would blow, hitting the house….
but it would not fall because it had been founded on the rock ... that is, on Him, who is the eternal Rock. He is the foundation that should carry all, absolutely all construction, physical, spiritual or moral.
Deuteronomy. 32: 4 He is the Rock, whose work is perfect
Isaiah says that the rain, the rivers, the winds will come, we cannot stop them, since it is necessary that every foundation be tested, that is, the heart… Isaiah 43: 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and if the rivers will not overwhelm you. When you go through the fire, you will not get burned, nor will the flame burn in you ... that is where what is under your construction will come to light. It is there where it will be determined, if the eternal Rock was placed, or simply you raised a building founded on pure emotions and human strength that are similar to the sand of the sea.
When the people of Israel wandered through the desert, there was the Rock, all the way He was with them.
Deuteronomy.8.5 and he drew water from the rock of flint;
Deuteronomy. 32.13 And he made it suck honey from the rock, And oil from the hard flint; Psalm. 40: 2 And he brought me up out of the pit of despair, out of the muddy mud; He put my feet on a rock, and made my steps straight.
The Rock that is Christ Jesus, is Eternal, Saves you, gives you to drink, is sweetness like honey, anointing oil, takes you out of despair, out of filth, puts your feet up, straightens your walk, is a castle, your freedom from sin, your strength, your confidence, your shield that defends you from your enemies, your strength, your salvation.
The rabbits, a people who do not make an effort and put their house on the stone ... you can fight, make an effort until you are exhausted, or perhaps even to death, like many who, because of their tireless work, have already died, because they forgot or ignored that Victory is not in how much you strive, but in how you take refuge, on which you are building your house, your spiritual dwelling ... Isaiah.32.1 Behold, a king will reign for justice, and princes will rule in judgment. And that man shall be as a hiding place against the wind, and as a refuge from the storm; like streams of water in a dry land, like the shadow of a great rock in a hot land.
Dear friend, dear friend, as always two options, or you are counted among the prudent, putting your house on the Eternal Rock, or as a fool, working hard without solid foundations for your life.
It's up to you.
