In Matthew, chapter 7, Jesus told a story about building a house. First, He talked about a wise man who built his house on a rock. When storms came, this house stood strong. Then Jesus talked about a foolish man who built his house on the sand. When the rains and winds came, his house was destroyed.
Jesus did not tell this story to teach us how to build our houses with wood and stone. He was talking about our spiritual lives. If we read and obey God’s Word, we will have a strong spiritual foundation for our lives. When we face bad times, we can depend on God to give us strength. But if we ignore God’s Word, we will be spiritually weak.
I hope that you want to be like the wise man and build your life on God and His Word. Read and study your Bible today. Take time to pray to God. Fellowship with other Christians and give thanks to God for all He has done for you.
