Wisdom says that the higher you want to ascend, the deeper you must dig in order to build your building, and support your work.
We know this from our everyday life, as we see tall buildings that have been built in proportion to their depth. Only then can the building have guarantees that it will withstand the storms and earthquakes; when it is grounded in proportion to its height and is well built on solid foundations.
This practical aspect of life reflects the deeper truth, which says that the better the foundation of our faith is, the better it is built on solid foundations, then the safer it will be in storms and earthquakes. And because storms and earthquakes usually exist in our lives, we must be sufficiently provident in order for our building to get through every difficulty.
