Where Are We Building?

Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock… 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…. (Mt 7:24-27)

Jesus describes the wise and the foolish man, explaining the foundations upon which they built their lives. The storm illustrates life’s trials which reveal the foundation upon which men, all of us, build our lives.

Storms are never fun, but they do give us opportunity to re-assess the foundations of our lives. Each re-assessment is an opportunity to replace sand with rock. We call this process, “experiencing the grace of God.”

  • Father, may we find the grace to rebuild wisely where the storm reveals we have built foolishly.
