images[7]Matthew 7:24-25

Two Foundations

Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. 

And you will sing as on the night you celebrate a holy festival; your hearts will rejoice as when people go up with flutes to the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel.  (Isaiah 30:29)

The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house.

And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood.  (Genesis 7:7)

But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. 

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.  He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  (Psalm 18:2)

And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand.

At the king’s command they removed from the quarry large blocks of quality stone to provide a foundation of dressed stone for the temple. (1 Kings 5:17)

Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like the wise one who built a house on rock . . . and weathered the storm.

Two foundations.  Rock or sand.  Let us spend some time today with these verses.
