"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock"
Matthew 7:24

In order to build a good and solid house one has to spend much time and effort, but the most important thing is to lay a solid foundation for it. Then this house will not fall even in the nastiest weather. Do you know what Jesus told about it?

Jesus taught that one had not only to listen to his words, but also to put them into practice. This is what his parable of the wise and foolish builders is about. You can read this parable in Matthew 7:24-27.
There is a man who comes to Jesus, listens to his words, and does what Jesus says. Who can we compare this man with?

This man is like a builder who dug deep and laid a solid foundation on the rock. When the flood came and the water came down, the house did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.

The one who listens to the words of Jesus, but do not practice them can be compared with a man who built his house on sand, with no sound. When the rain came down and the winds blew against that house, it fell with a great crash.
