Matthew 7:24-27 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.”
What is the rock in this story? I used to think that it meant God. That if you build your house on God that when hard times come you’ll stay standing. And that is true- God is the rock. But, if you pay attention to the wording of this it says, “Whoever hears these words of mine, and does them, will be like a wise man who builds his house on the rock.”
I’m challenging myself, and I want to challenge you to re-visit the teachings of Jesus and take them for what he’s saying to us right now in this moment. Refresh teaching about what he’s actually telling us about the values and specifics he wants us to live by, so that our life will be built on them, and we’ll have that strong foundation. -Lara
