DON’T BE FOOLISH

Matthew 7:24-29
Therefore, everyone who hears what I say and obeys it will be like a wise person who built a house on rock. Rain poured, and floods came. Winds blew and beat against that house. But it did not collapse, because its foundation was on rock. “Everyone who hears what I say but doesn’t obey it will be like a foolish person who built a house on sand. Rain poured, and floods came. Winds blew and struck that house. It collapsed, and the result was a total disaster.” When Jesus finished this speech, the crowds were amazed at his teachings. Unlike their scribes, he taught them with authority.

One year ago in January 2018 100 homes were destroyed and at least 17 people died when deadly walls of mud and debris roared down California hillsides.

Over the years I remember seeing many news reports of homes, that had been built on the edges of cliffs, destroyed when the earth gave way after heavy rains. And yet people continue to build in precarious places.

People are foolish. They are foolish in this natural world and they are foolish in the spiritual world. A life built on anything but the Word of God is foolishness that leads to destruction that never ends.
