The Man Who Built His House On Sand

Matthew 7:24-29




24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

29For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.


1 Corinthians 3:11 "For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

Dear sky,as you illustrate so perfectly, Jesus and prayer and bible study are the strongest foundations that we can build our lives upon. There is nothing stronger,because God and Jesus are an intricate part of our lives then.

Brother Dave.
