MATTHEW 7:24-27

Building on a Solid Foundation
24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it 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 bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey 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 collapse with a mighty crash.”

BUILT ON SOLID ROCK

If we listen to the teachings of Jesus and follow them, our life will be built on solid rock. It is truly a matter of faith. The Lord promises us that our giving, our generosity toward Him, will be returned in full; furthermore, we will be blessed with more than we give. One way to live a life on solid rock is to be faithful in our giving.
