If you build a house on unstable ground, that ground will, sooner or later, give way and the building will collapse…
From “The Sermon On The Mount…” “Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn’t fall, for it was founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn’t do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”— Matthew 7:24–27,

Watch the one minute video below. where we can see what happened when Brazil built a brand new shipping port on unstable ground.
They kept building and building, and adding more and more cargo weight, until the last pound weight was added, and, suddenly, everything collapsed in minutes. An edifice built upon unstable ground can look magnificent until the last moment when the foundations give way.
