Jesus the carpenter uses a building parable to drive home His point. It is a parable of the wise house builder and the foolish house builder. He who obeys Jesus is like the wise builder who builds his house on the rock. He who ignores Jesus is like the foolish builder who builds his house on the sand.
The main point of Jesus is the prime importance of obeying His words. Jesus is not talking about any other house. He is talking about the house of your life. Specifically, Jesus is talking about the foundation of the house of your life.
What kind of foundation are you building your life today? Are you building your life on the rock of obedience to Jesus’ words? Or are you building your life on the sand of disobedience?
Jesus teaches us two things about obeying and ignoring His words.
