“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
In Matthew 7:24- 27 Jesus gives the contrast of two men who build houses. One man, the foolish man, builds his house upon the sand. The other man, the wise man, builds his house upon the rock. When the rains come and the waves crash, only the wise man’s house is left standing. As a high school student, I thought I had laid my foundation already. What I have come to realize now is that I was still very much building my foundation in high school. I see now as an adult how I continue to struggle in the same areas that were my weak points high school. Take the opportunity to do something wise get into the scripture today and read Matthew 7:24- 27.
- Do you think your foundation is strong like a rock or loose and easily broken like the sand?
- How does your foundation affect how you live your life daily right now?
- Have you ever reached the point in your life where you felt like your foundation was shaken or rocked? What was that point in life?
- How did it shake you? Do you feel like you have gained a solid foundation again?
