Weekly Words To Live By #5 . . .

The wise man built his house upon the rock . . .

A parable from Jesus . . .


Matthew 7:24-29

24 "Anyone who listens to my teaching and obeys me is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.
25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won't collapse, because it is built on rock.
26 But anyone who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.
27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will fall with a mighty crash."
28 After Jesus finished speaking, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,
29 for he taught as one who had real authority -- quite unlike the teachers of religious law.

I remember singing the song about the wise man building his house upon the rock with the nursery-age kids in Sunday school. It's so important to learn this lesson early in life!

We sang this song today in Primary!
Of course we did the actions too. The kids love it, and they remember the wise man! Jesus Christ is the corner stone of our testimonies. He is the rock ; our foundation.
Have a wonderful day :)
