24 ‘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. 25 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. 26 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. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.’
Which house would you rather live in? Silly question really – I am sure we would all prefer the storm-proof one.
Which life would you prefer? The stable one or the precarious one? Again, a silly question I’m sure.
Let’s try together then to put Jesus’ teaching and example into practice today.
Lord, it sounds so straightforward, simply following your teaching, and yet it isn’t always so. Give us focus today so we aren’t distracted, commitment so we don’t waiver, and wisdom, so we can discern what your will is.
