Matthew 7:24 "Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears
these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it."
In the first century and the twenty-first century we can find easy places and ways to build that will easily give way to natural disasters like floods and winds. Jesus is contrasting easy places and easy ways to build with hard places and solid ways to build that can withstand natural disasters like floods and winds.
If we listen to what Jesus teaches and obey it, we are building our lives with a solid foundation and in a way that we can live abundant lives and not be destroyed by difficult situations that are sure to come. If don't listen to Jesus and obey Him, then we see our lives ruined in difficult circumstances.
How are you building your life? Are listening to the Master Builder Jesus and following His instruction?
Jesus said we are blessed when we hear God's word and obey.
