And no one can ever lay any other real foundation than that one we already have—Jesus Christ. 12 But there are various kinds of materials that can be used to build on that foundation. Some use gold and silver and jewels; and some build with sticks and hay or even straw! 13 . . . Everyone’s work will be put through the fire so that all can see whether or not it keeps its value . . .
I Cor 3:10-13 (TLB)
