Significance of River Rocks from the Holy Land
The Bible is full of references to rocks, owing in large part to the landscape fabric of the Holy Land, from lava rock to dry river beds. Not to mention the strength and resolve they represent. While the characteristics of rocks and boulders may not seem to offer many teachable moments, there are several lessons to be learned from the Holy Scripture's parables about stone.
One important lesson is that rocks are essential to building a foundation. Jesus taught that the house built on sand will not stand, but one built on a rock will weather any storm (Matthew 7:24–27). This analogy of materials can be applied to our lives; if we want to achieve anything lasting, we need to have a strong foundation.
In his first epistle to the Corinthians, Apostle Paul describes Christ as the spiritual rock that accompanied the Israelites in their Exodus, providing refreshment and nourishment during their weary trek (1 Corinthians 10:4). The metaphor of rock is used to suggest firmness, completeness, and stability in these instances. In Deuteronomy 32:4, God is also described as a stable rock. As we bring home river rock, pebbles, and gravel from the Holy Land, even in their tiny forms we are reminded of God's dependability and strength.
