Build your House on a Solid Foundation

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com

“Therefore everyone that hears these sayings of mine and does them will be likened to a discreet man, who built his house upon the rock-mass. And the rain poured down and the floods came and the winds blew and lashed against that house, but it did not cave in, for it had been founded upon the rock-mass” (Matthew 7: 24-25).

This beautiful verse from Jesus is a great help for life. How so? He is simply telling us that having a solid foundation of knowledge and belief is essential for personal success and happiness. Your heart and mind have to go hand in hand with what God tells you so that no stupid and untrue idea can tickle your ears and blow away your faith.

Is your faith “built on a solid rock-mass” or are you easily persuaded, influenced by the ideas and philosophies of the world?
