Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. (Matthew 7:24-25)
I love reading. I can sit with a book for hours and easily forget the world around me.
Getting up off the couch and actually doing something? Well, sometimes that’s a different story.
The Bible instructs us to get up off our collective duffs. Read Jesus’ words at the top of this post once more. If we listen to His words AND put them into practice, He promises us a foundation that can’t be shaken.
What happens if we don’t do what He says?
