The Wise and Foolish Builders
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
Tonight the Lord is teaching me to increase my faith in Him so that when the storms come I can bear the weight of them with Christ as my foundation. Sisters, tonight I hope you heed these words with me and build your foundation on Christ our redeemer. We do not know what the future holds, but God does and he wants to prepare us for what lies ahead. So let's learn from what he is teaching us today, and build our hearts on Christ.
