Try to recall the story about The Three Little Pigs.

Do you remember what The Wolf was about and what The Pigs did?

You probably don’t remember it clearly, because when you first heard the story you were just a kid.

Maybe you will view it differently now that you are big.

See The Wolf was a character that huffed and puffed,

He blew down the houses of the first and second little pigs, but the third one called his bluff!

See the first house was made of straw and the second was made of sticks and stuff,

But the third little pig made his house of bricks and for The Wolf this would prove to be too tough.

In today’s society The Wolf represents the Enemy who comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

Did you think about it this way when you were a little girl or boy?

Watch as this story comes to life for it is not a toy.

This is a story about foundation, family and faith.

It took more time to build a house of bricks, but good things come to those that wait,

So wait for goodness sake!

The Wolf represents all negative things, bad, evil and everything in between.

Like the third little pig, you should stand tall without shiver,

If you have a solid foundation, then you will be delivered.

Now I bet you thought you knew this story very well,

You read it in children’s books…but this is no fairy tale.

Moral: Without a solid foundation you will slip and fall to the tricks and schemes of the Big Bad Wolf also known as Satan. Take your time and build your foundation in Christ…brick by brick by brick.

2 Timothy 2:19 (New International Version)
