Matthew 7:24-29 The teachings of Jesus are a strong foundation for our lives. Some people hear the teachings of Jesus and obey them. They are like a wise man who built his house on a rock foundation. When the flood came the house stood firm. Some people hear Jesus' words, but they do not obey them. They are like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. When the flood came he lost everything because he had no foundation. Look at the picture. Which house is like your life?
