Wise and Foolish Builders

Wise and Foolish Builders

This week we conclude the Sermon on the Mount by looking at what Jesus teaches about the wise and foolish builders in Matthew 7:24-27. Everyone builds a house, and while it may not be a literal house, everyone is building a form of ‘house’ perhaps better described as character. Everyone is constructing a soul, badly or beautifully, on purpose or by accident, with God’s help or on your own.

The house we build will, like our actual physical place of homes, experience seasons of blooming and seasons of storms. No matter how hard we try, the storm always seems to come. Not by having more money or being really smart. Not even by having a lot of faith in God and praying real hard. Jesus says the storm will come. So join us this week as we look at how to build our lives on a strong foundation so that when the storms come, we will be able to stand strong.

Next steps

  • I will seek to understand Jesus and his way of life.
  • I will seek to do what Jesus says above everything else.
  • I will build my life on obedience to Jesus.
  • I am making a decision to be a disciple of Jesus.
